Default Would a 500Watt psu handle this?

MSI K8N NEO2 PLATINUM Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce3 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard

Thermaltake Tsunami VA3000BWA Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

THERMALTAKE CL-P0025 90mm 1 Ball 1 Sleeve Cooling Fan

SAMSUNG SpinPoint P Series SP1604N 160GB 7200 RPM IDE Ultra ATA133 Hard Drive

OCZ Gold Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)

eVGA 6800GT 256mb

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego



A little bit of overclocking will be done too.

Would a 500 Watt cover all that?

It would help if you linked it the PSU

Even if it was a cheap one, it would take it, until it eventualy blows up (as all do.)

Also make sure is has good Amps on the 12v rail. Atleast 18, preferable over 20 though.

I was thinking either Aspire, or MGE. Anyone have a beef with them?

I'm going for an Antec PSU, heard they are quite good. Maybe you should try them?
