View Full Version : What wattage?
12-09-05, 02:03 PM
What kind of wattage PSU should I be looking at for the following build:
DFI nF4 Ultra-D
1GB GeIL DDR400
Currently an IDE HDD, but in the near future a SATA one
Thanks for any help.

On average, Joe Sixpak -off the shelf one ..... 500w
Or a good brand name one for O/C'n 450+ >

What is the budget?
Amperage is more important than the overall wattage. Pay more attention to the +12v wattage.
I would agree with the above poster but again, brand is important if you want quality. A Deer-made 500w is a fire waiting to happen, and that's not a good thing.

I'm not sure that's true. Almost every PSU in every computer is 'Deer made.' How often do you hear of a computer burning a house down. It may suck for OCing, but these things pass electrical safety standards.
