    Hey,

    I was wondering which PSU I should get for the following computer specs:

    Processor:
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6750

    Motherboard:
    Intel D975XBX2

    Graphics Card (PCI-Ex16):
    HIS HD 2600XT 512MB IFAN 128BITS DDR III

    Harddisk:
    Maxtor 200GB 720

    RAM:
    DDR II (2x1) GB - 667

    Drives:
    1) DVD RW
    2) CD RW

    PCI:
    1) PCI NIC
    2) 56K Modem

    Overclocking:
    Stock CPU Speed: 2660
    Stock Vcore: 1.25
    OC CPU Speed: 4000
    OC Vcore: 1.6
    Estimated OC CPU Wattage: 160

    CPU Utilization:
    85% TDP

    System Load:
    90%

    Capacitor Aging:

    I would really appreciate any help chosing which PSU to purchase. If there is any other information you need for this, let me know.

    Thanks!

    Cool, thanks, although, I don't know much about PSUs, and was trying to figure out how much watts I would need and which type.

    You should be fine with a decent 500watt, although you can get a 600+ in case you decide to add a better video card, etc. in the future.

    I wouldn't look at either brand suggested above because they are not original psu manufacturers and this is one place you need the best. 550-600 sounds right and buy one of these brands for safety sake...Antec, Thermaltake or Enermax.
