Default Re: How to tell what PSU matches with what parts

What video card do you have? You messed up a link.

EDIT: I would probably recommend this no matter what you have:
Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40C EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7 - Power Supplies

If you have low end video, at least you wont need to upgrade your PSU again when you upgrade. If you do have a gaming card then it will power any of the them fine anyway.

For that you can get a 450W Corsair if you wanted.
