    More than enough.

    Presuming you arent running a dedicated graphics card (there isnt one in your spec list)

    Yep should still be more than fine.

    My friend is running a higher spec machine than that, including an 8800gts with a 620w with no problems.

    You'll have more than enough power.

    Although if you decide to go SLI, you may want to invest in 720w just incase.

    never heard of that problem with the mobo. Sounds suspicious tbh... a mobo using 30 amps ??? not like it has a starter engine exactly... -_-

    Look at tyhis thread i started a while ago. It will help you more than i can in words. Take your time to read through it. Especially the advice given by win2kpro.

    yup, Asus M2N32-Sli Deluxe, ASUS itself recommends minimum of 36amps or it will not boot, I decided to buy the Foxconn 590 Sli board, performs better than the M2N32, I'm also buying the OCZ GamXStream 700w PSU, just to have some head room with it's 72amps.

    and I already know about that, I'm just doubting because the formula for figuring out true amperage is watts / volts (x / 12), that formula left my X-Finity with 35amps not the 38 promised by the label, So im just gonna buy the GameXStream.


    @crEA-tEch

    I think you ate too much cereal, LOL, IP35 Pro needs 35~40amps, read it in a review site, can't remember the link, firefox crashed -_-.



    P.S:

    It seems that everyone miss-understands me when I say to boot, when I say to boot, I mean to boot the entire system.
