I'm planning on upgrading my system and I'm going from a p4 to a amd64 with PCI-E video card.
I'm looking for a psu that is pci-e ready, from 550-600 watt, and would like to have a smart cable design.
I would like to get this before i upgrade because my current psu is having voltage problems and is causing graphical glitches when i play games. so it will need to be able to run with my current set up. i don't think it will matter but i don't know too much about psu and with the new pci-e i don't know what new hookup it uses. so i have a few questions.
I've been to newegg, compusa, and various other places and haven't found exactly what im looking for. i did however find a 500w that thermaltake was selling but they do not offer it with 550 or 600w as of yet.
so my first question i guess would be. do any of you know of a psu that has what I'm looking for? (pci-e ready, capable of handling 2 pci-e nvidia graphic cards, 550-600watt, with a good smart cable design)
will i be able to use the new psu with my current setup? basicly the graphic cards (P4 3.06 533 fsb, ati x800 pro 256, 1gig (2x512) ddr ram, 2 hard drives, 1 CD burner, 1 DVD burner, sb audigy sound card) to (amd64 4000, nvidia 6800 512, everything else pretty much the same only i will get another gig of ram, possibly with the psu.
this link will take you to thermaltake psu and give you an idea on what I'm looking for. i like the multi connectors it looks like it has enough to cover just about anything Click here
thanks in advance for you time.
