My System Specs

Default Is a 400W enough?

Hi all,

I wanted to know if a Seasonic SS-400ET would be sufficient to power the following (for folding purposes):

Gigabyte GA-X38-DS4
Intel Q6600
2x2gb G.Skill DDR2-1066
BFG Geforce GTX260 (192 sp)
1 WD Raptor 74 GB
2x500 GB Seagate SATA
2x300 GB Seagate (1 SATA and 1 IDE)

With one HD you'd be pushing it. With 5, definitely not.

For folding, no. For normal use I would say yes but 100% load continuously would be too much for that PSU.

At job there is a tech folding with this setup, Q6600 8800GT 2HDD 1 drive and 2 fan. The PSU is a 400W SPI,he stay really hot and we have estimated with the required equipement that there was like 412W output so a 400W wont be enough.

Ask for more.
