|I'm building a "mini" gaming pc. This is what it is now|
- Foxconn H67S LGA 1155 Intel H67 (Mini ITX if that's needed)
- Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
(I'm running the video off of the processor right now, also I'm using the stock cpu fan)
- G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
- 500gb Serial ATA/300 7200rpm (Plan on upgrading, came with original pc)
- DVD-Writer DVD-RAM/±R/±RW (Idk if all that is needed, but again came with pc)
-Athena Power AP-MFATX35 350W Mini ITX / Micro FLEX ATX / ATX12V
(I can fit a bigger psu in, but not by too much)
To finish my build I pla on putting in a video card either
- SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 (which is low-profile and pci express 2.1)
- SAPPHIRE 100357LP Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 (which is also low-profile and pci express 2.1)
Now I know that Wattage isn't the only thing that matters. The Amps also count and I dont understand electricity as well as you guys might. So I was wondering how much Watts and Amps Id need to run my computer smoothly playing games.
Also if anyone has any suggestion on video cards (of course Id like to know the Watts and Amps I'd need if I put in a different video card) or anything else I'd really like to know.
This was built in an Emachines EL1360G-UW11P. In case anyone would like to know.
