[QUOTE=platinumsword;2168121]Without guessing the total make-up of your system, because each piece has a power draw, the 750watt power supply should give you some breathing room. It’s better to have a little extra rather then be on the cusp or short and your PC will thank you for that.
i totally agree … a power supply is something you dont want to sacrifice in wattage and quality cause it can contribute to a more stable system.
bottom line… do not get a cheap power supply… pay the extra money for it… it’s worth it in the long run… and yes i know your on a budget… but your probably looking at 100+ dollars for a power supply that’s got that high of a wattage rating… i paid 109.99 for my Enermax Liberty 500watt back in March 2006 which is when i built my current PC… it was worth every cent cause my system is quite stable according to ‘Prime95’ torture test. (it stress tests your pc to make sure it’s stable)
p.s. the OP was worried about video card taking up to much room… ill just make a quick note in my case… with my case (which is mid-tower) and i have a Geforce 7900GT video card… it’s so long that one of my hard drive bay’s cant be used cause of it… i got 5 total in my case but only 4 are usable cause of the length of the video card.
