Hi all...

Building a new system with the following specs:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Visiontek Radeon 3870
Gigabyte p35 ds3l
Crucial 2x1gig Tracer 1066

First the specs of my current PS:
Antec Trueblue 480 20pin
+5v 38A / +12v 28A / +3v 30A

Do you guys think that if I get a 20 to 24pin adapter that it will be ok with my new system? Or do I need to buy ne PS?

Thanks

Replace it - that model is from the dark days of Fuhjyyu Syndrome. If the capacitors haven't gone bad by now, they will soon.

I had that PSU once, and it severely limited my overclock with a 3.4 Ghz socket 478 Prescott based system. I doubt the Quad would like it much!

Plasmah,

+ 1 on that. Had two of them, less the LED light model (TP480), RMA'd on a milder system than yours after both blew capacitors. A Corsair VX450 would be a good choice if you don't plan to go SLI.
