Hey all, I'm going to be starting a new rig pretty soon and as I don't have a money tree in the backyard, I'm going to have to do it piece by piece. I've already got the case on the way, and the next thing I will probably buy is the PSU. As far as what I plan on putting in the system once I have the moolah is as follows...
Then I will have a DVD burner, haven't decided on one yet, soundblaster 5.1 sound card, haven't decided on that either, and a small dot-matrix display in one of the drivebays, 2 to 3 ccfl's and approx 5 fans ranging in size from 80 to 120mm
I'm not planning on putting another graphics card in for quite some time and I tried to use the power supply calculator here on the site, but most of the stuff I'm wanting to use isn't listed in the calculator so I was wondering which PSU I should get.....I know that more is always better as far as upgradeability in the future, but it also means more heat and I was just wondering if a 700w one would be enough to power the graphics card or if I should go ahead and spend the extra green on the 800 and be done with it?
Any help or suggestions are welcomed and appreciated, thanks in advance.
