Just need to know if the power supply I am thinking about buying is enough to power this system. Been a very long time since I built a system and things have changed haha.


CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition

Memory: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1333

GPU: XFX Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 (possibly going to crossfire this with another one)

HD: Random 7200 160GB

The PSU in question: Cooler Master 600W eXtreme Power Plus

Sorry if this is trivial, I am just getting back into it!

A PSU with an output efficiency rating of 80% would be more than adequate for your needs, the PSU that you have asked about is not one of Cooler Masters better products, see http://www.realhardt...vos/Page364.htm + benchmark and review @ http://www.hardwares...y-Review/1034/8 + see attachment below.

What is your budget for the PSU and in what country will you be purchasing so we can see what we can suggest as a better alternative.
