    Question WHICH PSU! and QUICK Want to order before 12!

    Alright people as name suggests... right im running alot and want to run more and also have it as future proof as possible...
    at the moment im running.
    amd 2800barton
    corsair xms3200 512mb
    GeIL value select 2x512mb
    iceq (i think i cant remember lol) 9800pro with the big artic cooler as standard
    320gb wd sata
    160gb wd ide
    320gb wd ide
    asus dvdrw ide
    asus cdrw ide
    want to buy another 320gb sata
    want to buy another 320gb ide and take out cdrw ide
    2x akasa 8" cold blue cathodes
    2x akasa 80mm crystal blue led fan
    want to run another for front of case but scared to overload as everything is doubled up
    and all this through a 320w chieftec psu that came with my dragon dx01 case...
    basically i want to be able to add another big sata driver and replace my cdrw with another ide drive so alotta powered drives here and be able to run my cathodes and more fans without it blowing up haha.and if i can be cheaky i'd also like to add a ide/sata card and run another 2 ide hdd's if possible as i have a 200gb and a 120gb i basically use this for video/picture edits and storage etc so i dont like to delete anything and i keep all my music on here too
    so what psu will be able to drive that many hdds and 2 optical drives a 9800pro with big artic cooler set of cathodes 3/4fans oh and as a bonus i'd kind of like sli/crossfire compatability for when i upgrade whenever that is?
    i cannot stress enough how much this will help and as many answers before 12 so i can try and get it for tomorrow or atleast posted tomorrow also links to what psu and site and price will help.
    cheers
    oh and im from the UK and will it have enough molex's for this many hard drives etc?

    OK, these 2 would be ideal for you in my opinion :

    Tagan 2Force 530W - http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=204876

    OCZ ModStream 520w - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...e_OCZ_241.html

    Both under 70 notes, which is great value

    well from all that id say that a 500W will give you plenty of punch and stability and somehting in the line of a seasonic/enermax/tagan/hiper

    id surgest the seasonic (top link) but its preference really as there all good psus and it depends if you want modular or not as the seasonic isnt but the enermax and hiper are making cable management easier, altho it seams that your gonna be using all the leads anyway

    QFT. The 430W might even be enough.

    I would heartily recommend the Seasonic 500w, I'm using it my current system, which is pretty similar in terms of load (got another hard disk on order) and its been perfect. I'm also running 7 fans in the case - so that would be comparable to your extra cathodes, and load has never been a problem
