Enough Power?

Hey guys, in the process of getting a new rig built and got these parts:











All in all around 500$. My problem is, is that i'm using an Ultra 750w model D0608. It's not modular and the inside of my case is cable city, and my case doesn't have a very good option for cable management (nowhere for the cables to tuck through the back). This is the case I'm currently using: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1446794&CatId=1509

I'm trying to spend the least amount of money possible so I was going to stick with my case and psu but without being able to have good cable management i'd rather get a modular, so I found this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341017

So what I was wondering is do you guys think this PSU could power the card, ram, and cpu? Or would it be worth it to keep the 750w I have that isn't modular and have terrible cable management? Thanks!

600W will do you just fine, Ultra makes terrible PSUs anyways. You only need high Wattage PSUs for xfire and SLI usually.

Random question: Do you plan to OC that CPU? I've heard you can get quite an OC out of it but never played with one myself. If you want some assistance with OCing it you could PM me (if thats supported on this site) or ask any of the other people around here. 

Thanks for the quick reply man! I'll get on it then because I can't stand a clutter of cables, which i'm sure everyone here can understand haha. I've actually never overclocked a CPU nor do I know how, I was just going to go with the default speed since i'll be using the stock cooler.


I've never actually used a modular PSU, but over time I've become a master of cable management, you'd never look at my builds and think it was messy, always hiding nets of cables in all the corners and creases. I didn't verify the quality of the PSU for you, but if I recall my history correctly OCZ used to make terrible PSUs until they bought up PC Power & Cooling and their quality shot up to accectable standards. If I'm wrong about this please correct me.

Secondly, you don't need a aftermarket cooler to do some OCing, you just won't be able to OC quite as far. Once you got the system build come back and we can give you some pointers on how to OC that chip without risking damaging it. 

you won't need 16GB of ram, the most games don't even use more than 2GB unless they are patched (skyrim is an example) so the most you'd need for games is 8GB, I'll make an uber awesome $500 build for you just give me a bit

I think he stated that he had already obtained those parts, I may have misinterpreted that though. I agree that it isn't a great build, but I didn't want to say that as I assumed he had already purchased them.

ah got it, there are so many on here a day I just look for a price, country, and if they want to overclock and start making a build like a robot
