Default Re: My New Alienware ALX Rig...

how many watts do you think is needed to properly run my rig? right now theres a 650w ultra psu in there. i have heard mixed reviews about ultra, and im not a big fan so i was thinking of swapping out. i used the psu calculator on newegg and it says i need 648w to power my rig if i get the 8800gts. so I am thinking of going with that 750w zalman psu.

what you guys think?

If thats the case. I would part out that computer and get a new quad core setup. ddr1 is worth a decent amount of money to.

It isnt watts that are needed. its amps.
