I am in the process of researching my new rig However I am a little overwhelmed by power supplies and what the requirements for a set would be.

So I need someone with more know how than I to critique my PSU choice and for others to oogle





I have a 120gb & 300gb SATA HD setup at the moment, but im adding a 500gb

I am salvaging the burner, dvd-rom, sound card, & other 1gb of ram out of my other last set up.

LAst but not least the PSU:

you input in some form or fashion is needed. I dont want to buy a PSU unless i know it would work according to specs

When you say GPUs, are you planning on getting two and running them in SLi mode? Because you hould note that some of the higher-end graphics cars wil require their own dedicated power line from the PSU. I agree that 500W should do, but you should be aware of the power requirements of each component. When I'm picking a PSU, I not only look at the brand and reliability of it (eg: some no-name or generic power supplies have high fluctuation bands, so they won't provide a constant 500W, whereas I know that Antec's powersupplies are very smooth in their power delivery), but I look at every component in the system, and their power consumption, add it all up, and give myself a comfortble lee-way of 50 - 100W of power, just in case.
