ASUS P5QL PRO LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard

Thats the Motherboard I'm using.
I plan on running 4 Terrabytes thru it.
My Video card will be a NVidea 9800
And I want a Blue Ray DVD player in it.

3/12 Floppy


Do you think a 500 wat power supply will be enough for it?

Each hd will need 30 watts of power.
Personally i would suggest a 650 to a 750 to do present and future upgrades.

me and my girl are deciding on a new tower.
And the one I want to get has room for about 7-8 hard drives how much power do you think I'll need for that in the long run?

Great looking case. I would still look at a 650 watt ps. That way you are assured of enough power to run what you want.
