Hi all,

I am new here and would like to ask a basic question?

Is 500w enough to power this set up?
or should I get more?

-AMD Phenom ii x6 1055t
-gigabyte motherboard, 790xta-ud4 (am3 ddr3)
-corsair 4gb RAM

I am looking to purchase - coolermaster 500w silent pro m modular.

I will later be installing a decent graphics card also!

I will be using this rig mainly for gaming and audio applications running lots of samples!!

Thanks

Thanks for the response

I think I'm going to go with a 950w to cover all bases!

looking at this one so far, £122.00
