Power Enough?

  1. I was just wondering should my Antec True Power Version 2 550watt be able to run all my current specs plus swapping my 7800 gtx with the X1800 XT Radeon 512mb? Opinions are open. Specs in the Profile.

    Of course.

    I've run systems as good as 7800GTX x 2 in SLI with 2GB DDR-2 and 3.6GHZ+ Intel CPUs with a 480w Antec Neo reliably.

    People pushing +600w PSUs are only feeding market propaganda. All you need is a good quality PSU that's +400w and you should be set for most high-end systems. A little extra wattage for SLI and tons of drives may not be necessary, but its nice to have a little extra.
