Exclamation NEED HELP PSU and Mobo PROBLEMS!!

OK well im Dumb as hell
I chose this PSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817190012

And this Mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131011

And right after i order them i see that the PSU is not supporting X2 CPUs
I was like o SH**
But i still had hove intill I noticed a comment on the Mobo
"These days you need ram that you know for a fact is compatible with your motherboard, and you need to a solid power supply. 26 amps the bare minimum on 12 volt rail, 40 amps better to avoid problems. Wireless is great, can act as a NAP or client and was very easy to setup."

Now i feel LIKE SHI******

Then i see this
"System built July 13th. AMD X2 5200, Asus M2N32 SLI-Deluxe Wireless Edition, 2gig Kit DDR2 800 Crucial Ballistix, EVGA Geforce 7600GT, Raid-0 2X Seagate Barracuda 320gig Sata3, 600W Xion Modular PSU, Sunbeam UFO Transparent Cube, 27" Viewsonic LCD TV, Windows Vista 32-Bit. Cube modded to be watertight & Nitrogen environment, and I've modded a mini-fridge bought at C*stco"

So now im alll happy buy im alll like CRAP Y DO I HAVE TO RMA


SOO all i need to no is WILL THIS SYSTEM WORK!!!!!
And if ur wondering

heres the link

That PSU has 40 amps on the +12V rail, although I don't think that reviewer knows what he's talking about.

It will work just fine.

Look on the newegg specifications page:


You want to look under Output. The +12V rail is what really matters. On this PSU, there are 2 +12V rails. It's pretty common to have 2 or more +12V rails on PSUs these days. Anyway, see where it says +12V1@20A, +12V2@20A? That means on both +12V rails, there are 20 amps. Combine that to get 40 amps.

Just so you know, volts times amps equals watts. So that PSU has 480 watts on the +12V. The +12V rail is where the most important components draw power, the graphics card, CPU, etc. These are also the components that need the most power though. That's why it's important to have a powerful +12V rail, especially in gaming rigs where the video card is sucking up tons of power.

The 12V does NOT have 40A on it. Read the label on the psu. It says 12V1 + 12V2 = 384W. Now with simple math (Voltage*Amprage=Wattage) You really only have 32A combined on the 12V rails.

Oh, well I just saw +12V1@20A and +12V2@20A. I'm guessing that's because of the PSU's efficiency...
