What difference will the extra 50w would be gained, if any, in a P4 2.4B system, on an Asus P4PE? I plan to overclock on air and run a GF4 Ti4200 and 4 80mm case fans. There will be 1* CDR, 1*DVD, and 2 seagate barracudas.

thanx

Welcome to the Forums!

I can't imagine how you'd be able to tell any difference between those two PSUs with your system. The 430w will do it for you.

With the Antec True Power's you could probably get away with a 380W, as the 12V line is seperate from the 3.3 and 5V lines. As far as I know it's the only line of power supplies with this feature. The new Vantec's might have it, but I'm not sure.

Do the PC Power & Cooling PSU's have it?
