    Question Need PSU Suggestion For New Computer - Please Help!


    Hey I really need a suggestion or opinion on what PSU to go with for building a new computer. I currently own a Corsair 650W and use that with a Intel Core 2 6700 and a Geforce 480 running fine.

    The new build will consist of:
    Antec 1200 (Using All The Internal Fans)
    Intel Core i7-940
    HP Blu-Ray Drive - BD340I (New at Best Buy)
    Corsair XMS3 6GB CMX6GX3M3C1600C7
    Nvidia Geforce 480
    Soundblaster X-Fi Music Card
    Happauge TV Tuner: HVR-1600
    Corsair Cooling Hydro Series - CWCH50
    About 5 USB devices (Flash, mouse, keyboard, wirelress adapter)

    Any feedback is greatly appreciate, thanks!!!

    If you like your Corsair 650W then I would recommend getting another one or reusing the one from your existing system.

    Overclocking?


    How about if I decide to overclock the system? Think 750W be ok or should I step it up more?

    Ive also heard 650W is to low from people at work but I am not sure.

    Based on what?

    Use a PSU calculator and total up your components and make a decision on the level you need based on this data.
