How Much Power Do I Need for My Rig (Now a HSF Question)?
Specs are below. Gonna eventually add 2 more SATA drives, 2 more sticks of RAM, and hook up my old Memorex 40max to make it a dual optical drive system. I think either my Antec 550W True Power is too noisy or my case sucks for sound reduction. It's mainly excessive fan whirling from my PSU, and I thought Antec makes quiet PSUs? I think I'm gonna go with an Antec Sonata II case, which comes with a 450W Smart Power 2 PSU. Can I get away with an Antec 450W PSU?
