Default Gaming system.

Firstly what do you think of this for a gaming system?


AMD Athlon64 3700 San Diego
Abit AN8 Fatal1ty
Chenbro Gaming Bomb MIDI ATX Orange
Kingston 1GB Kit (512x2) PC3200
120GB Seagate Barracuda7 (8MB,7200)
SonyDWD26A10 16x16x4x DVDRW Black
Gigabyte GeForce 7800GTX 256MB
17" LG Studioworks 700M Multimedia
Akasa Ultra Quiet 460W ATX V2.0

Secondly do you think that this Akasa PSU 460w would cope?


+3.3V | 0.5A | 30.0A | -
+5V | 0.3A | 30.0A | -
+12V1 | 1.0A | 14.0A | 16.0A
+12V2 | 1.0A | 15.0A | -
-12V | 0.0A | 0.5A | -
+5Vsb | 0.0A | 2.0A | 2.5A


Also do power supplies need something extra to run PCI-E cards?

It's going to cost me £1200, which is about $ 2,106.

Yeah thatsa beast.

a 460 watts PSU will work fine i would assume. I dont quite know the 7800's wattage reccommendation. However, it should state somewhere.

I'd go with another power supply just to be safe, a more name-brand with more power. Try the OCZ Powerstream 520w.

I think I will go for the "Enermax Noisetaker 535W ATX V2.0" as the custom build site I am ordering from doesn't stock the one you listed above.

Think this will be able to run Oblivion when it comes out?
