Default Buying Tomorrow!

Hello, I have posted this similar topic many times before but i just want to ask again.


I am buying tomorrow a E6650 cpu and a P5KC motherboard.

I have a 430 watt thermaltake PSU that came with my soprano case. (Yes i no, please don't flame me !)

http://images10.newegg.com/productim...133-157-09.JPG

I would just like to no if this will be alright to support my current pc. I have a 19" widescreen and a x1950gt gfx card, i also have a 250gig hard drive. I am also going to upgrade to 2gig of ram soon, and i currently have 1gig of ram, 2x512mb duel channeled (but if i buy a new psu then i will have to wait longer)

My friend said that my psu will be fine for what i have and the E6650 wont take up to much power. I just thought i would get a second opinion. Maybe a psu upgrade will be good for the future and not just now?

what's wrong with the Thermaltake? unless it has very low amps on the 12v rails, you should be more than fine with keeping it.

the big difference is the brand... both are the same and if you are not overclocking anytime soon, then I would go for the lower price.

either one is good ram. You won't have any problems OCing with them, so I still say go with the cheaper.
