Default Re: PSU QUESTION!!

Yha, you'll want a new psu if you go with that. It draws 50W on full, so leaving 400ish for your rig, which you might get away with, but i wouldn't risk it.

as others have said in your other thread...... I don't think that chilltec cooler is worth the premium it commands, but I believe even if you do get that cooler, 450W will still be sufficient
