My current specs are:
- Thermal Take TR2-470NP 470W
- Asus M2N-X
- AMD Athlon64x2 4200+ (Windsor)
- 2x1GB 667 DDR2
- A bunch of HDDs (1 IDE, 3 SATA)
If I am calculating it right, my current power consumption must be around:
35W + 90W + 15W + 4 * 15W + 60W = 260W
I am willing to upgrade my VC to HD5770 and from what I've read, it uses 18-108W, i.e. I'll need to add just another 50W, making it to 310W.
What do you think? Will the PSU be powerful enough? At the moment, it's giving me 12.74V on the 12V rail (or whatever it's called). Not that I'm sure it's saying anything as I rather think one should be probing the amperes).
