  1. Friend is giving me old server MB/CPUs/RAM, I know all in all it is kind of outdated but I would like a system to play around with and since it is free.... I would like to know what is a good compatible PSU for this motherboard.... I don't plan on doing more than 2 video cards... My friend told me best bet would be to get like 1000W which is fine, But I don't want to purchase one that won't be totally compatible with the board

    Thanks in advance

    Any ATX12V PSU will work for that machine. I would recommend picking up one from either Corsair,Seasonic,Antec,OZC and even Rosewill. However, in terms of wattage, I don't think you'll need 1000W. That will be overkill even for a dual GPU setup. For 2 video cards you would be fine with something in the range of 700-750W. Furthermore, you'll want to make sure your case will fit the power supply you purchase. So, it will be good to check dimensions before hand.
