First time poster, what a great forum this is!

 

Hello everybody,

I am building a new system and I could sure use some advice from the helpful people here Geeked 

I'm interested in buying a GeForce 8800 GT 512M, I'm also planning to buy the following:

Mobo: Asus P5E
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6850
Memory: Not sure yet, any PC2-6400 DDR2-800 type. (2x 1GB)

I am wondering how strong should the case power-supply be, I was also hesitating about my mobo choice, do you guys think it's a good compatible choice? (I am not big on over-clocking, I don't have the passion for it)


Many thanks in advance,
Toastman.

As you can see in my sig a 520w powers an Ultra just fine. The brandname is actually important as are the amps across the 12v rails.

Here are links to some good choices:     LINK(standard cables)     LINK(modular cables)     LINK(modular cables)

Yup. he's right on.  If you go with a good brand in the 500-600w range you should be perfectly fine.
