    Default Need some power supply suggestions

    Ive got a DFI x48 t2r, 2gb gskill ram, western digital 250gb harddrive, and a xfx 8800 gts 320mb,. Laying around the house from where i put some new parts in my computer. Was just wondering what size power supply i could use to put this togeather, would like a inexpensive, but decent power supply, that would run these parts, also need advice on a inexpensive processor, some thing that would overclock good that does not cost to much. Around 3mhz and higher would be good. Im just going to use it as a backup if i ever need it or just to play around with, ill also be posting in the processor section, for the processor suggestions. Thanks for any help.

    thats the processor i paired with my 8800gt and im doing fine on a hec 585w psu. ur graphix card needs only 1 6 pin connector and the cpu will overclock fine with 1 4 pin connector. beefy dual cores are good for games. and ur mobo has a fsb that wants to run the e8400's 1333

    Need something cheeper on the proc, something closer to 100 dollars, dont really wont another E8500, If i were going to spend 190 dollars, id just spend a little more and get a 9650 for this rig and put the E8500 in the other. But thanks for the suggestion.

    For your processor, given the budget you've set, I'd look at the e7X00 series. Wolfdale cores, like the e8X00 series, just half the cache and a lower FSB (1066 vs. 1333.)

    They OC quite well, too......have had an e7200 up to 4GHz. And the reduction in amount of cache shouldn't impact you too much, at least noticeably. Newegg has an e7400 for $120 and if you look around and give yourself a little time, I'm sure you can find one for around $100 or just over. (If you have a MicroCenter nearby, they are selling retail boxed e7400's for $99, for example.)
