  1. I am building a new computer. Here is the Specs of what is goig in it: AMD Phenom Quad Core Processor 9600 CPU, GIGABYTE GA-MA770-DS3 Motherboard, Antec Nine Hundred Case (with 4 big fans in it), 2-2 Gig Supertalent ddr2 800 CL5 ram with an MSI 8800GT OC video card with 3 SATA HD's (all Western Digital 2-250 gig and 1-160 gig) and a Samsung SATA DVD Burner on windows Ultimate 64 bit.

    My question is what power supply should i use? I have build computers before but this is topping my knowledge. Would a standard 400 Watt Hi-pro (model number HP-E4009F5W) be sufficent since i am not doing SLI?

    All comments would be appreciated.

    This power supply would be temp for about 2 months till i get Antec NeoHE 650 High Efficiency 650W Power Supply.

    google PSU calculator. Add 30% to the results for cushion. Then buy a QUALITY PSU. If you buy cheap, you run the risk of destroying your nice, new system.
