    Enough Power?

    hello,

    Would this PSU:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=138557

    Be enough to power (with full stability of course!):

    Asus M2V-(http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=417756)

    256Mb Asus 7600GT- (http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=370152)

    AMD AM2 Athlon 64 4000+, 2.6GHz, 512KB Cache- (http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=573116)

    2Gb (2X1Gb) Corsair TwinX XMS2, DDR2 PC5400 (667)- (http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=291363)

    2x 80GB Hard Drives (ATA133) (7200rpm I think...)

    1x CD-RW/DVD combo drive (52x32x52x16)

    A floppy Drive

    1x120mm fan, 3x80mm fans

    And of course, the coolers on each of the components.


    Sorry for being a bit thorough.


    Thanks in advance!

    Seems a bit of a drop down from the system(s) I quoted you last time.

    I would imagine the PSU is fine tho

    More or less an identical system for my sons cept for the vid card it was a 6800GT. That ran on a 420 X-Eye Tagan with no problems. 22 amps on the 12 volt was more than adequate.

    hello,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    To be honest, I'm pretty surprised that's anywher near enough, I know people who run far older systems (northwood, 9800 etc) and they use no less than 500W.

    Anyway, surprised but happy, I won't have to throw away my PSU now.


    Seems a bit of a drop down from the system(s) I quoted you last time.


    This is something completely different, I am planning to buy these components to upgrade an existing system in addition.
