How Much PSU power for my Folder?
I am wondering how much Power I need to Run my Folding Box I am using a PSU that is not modular and has To many of wires and because of this the wires sometimes touch the CPU fans

My 2p rig (same as yours) pulls about 300w from the wall, under full load.

so a 400-430 watt should be good enough?

Good quality. I'd run a 500w Gold as a minimum.

Get a 500W and that will put you in the Optimal Efficency of most PSU's these days.

I always see brand names like rosewill and Fps that I don't really know about how Do I know if they are any good.
There are so many hardware companies that use other name brands that just Brand them with there company name it is confusing.
