my psu for my new build
Hey im getting a 7800gt, amd 64 3500, asus premium a8n sli, crucial pc4000. I have a 400 watt raidmax psu i dont think its very good but do you think it will support that.

i think thats it

No way, definetly go with an OCZ or Antec 500w PSU or higher. 600w leaves lot's of room for expansion and upgrades later, and overclocking.

Won't be able to power it.

This 450W Fortron is the absolute minimum you should go

I went to one of those site where you can add up the wattage and it said i wouldnt go over like 300 watts used but i guess if you guys say so. I might have to buy a new psu before i put all my stuff together

If you have the money go with this one. If its a bit too expensive go with on of the true power series, like this one. If you have to buy something cheap, go with the one that weringo posted.

Well you see here is my pickle i alreay had my parents give me 700$ on parts in like a week and they are fed up so we are positive this power supply wont run it and if so i cant go over 60 bucks for a new one :/.

But if i have to buy anything what do you guys think of this one.

That one you linked will do fine.

For a 24pin atx plug thingy, get this psu:
It has 2 12v rails, Active PFC, i think 17ms on w/o power, and some other things.
That psu should power almost any pc reliably.

DUDE that enermax is exactly wat i got, its quiet, and efficient, will do 20-24 pin, sli, watever u want it to....i love it, its the best under 80$, AND ITS ON SALE!!!

edit- 3 12v rails!!!!
