  1. Hello everyone,

    i am in the process of building my first rig and i have a few questions regarding the PSU and which ones are compatibile with my rig.

    First off, i have an Asus P5q Pro motherboard.
    The manual says for the ATX power connectors that is has a 24 pin EATXPWR and an 8 pin EATX12v.

    it also says to only use an 8 pin EPS +12v plug for the EATX12V connector.

    I'm also going to be running:
    -Intel E8400 CPU
    -Asus Radeon HD 4850
    -2 x 500GB Sata HDs
    -4 GB DDR2 1066 ram
    -standard cd/dvd-rom drive
    -4 x 120mm case fans.

    i also want to have the option of upgrading to dual video cards in the future.

    would something like this be compatible or am i completely off. I dont know much about what to look for in a PSU so i want to make sure i get the right one for my setup:

    something like that maybe?

    any help would be appreciated.
