im building a new computer and im haveing problems picking a power supply. i use to build alot of computers when i was in school around the age of 17 and psu power was never an issue.
My Budget Is Around 600 Ill Add More Later Basicly Getting Bar Min That I can add too later on since my comp im on is just not cutting it anymore... i do ALOT of surfing , art programs and music mixing. wife also uses it for school.
What im planning on building
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2
Have Not Picked A Case yet and ill be using my old video card and hard drive for the time being.
What do i need as far as keeping the cpu cool? (besides case fans) as i hear the duo and the qauds get pretty hot
And PSU as far as power watts and name brand if at possible i would like to keep it under $100?
so it will be the specs above with my Nvidia Geforce FX 5500 video card , 250 gig HD , 1TB external hd , wireless pci card , usb expansion pci. the only thing ill upgrade on is prob 2 gigs more of ram if the 2 gb dont cut it, anthor hd , and maybe a lil bit better video card i dont play games or anything so i dont need a huge one.
Thanks For Any Help And Advice
