Hi im trying to build a high end performance pc for gaming and this is what i got so far for my performance pieces

-GIGABYTE GA-K8N Pro-SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
-eVGA Geforce 7800GTX 256-P2-N525-AX Video Card
-AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+
-2gb of Kingston RAM
-Sony DVD/CDRW drive
-180 GB HDD



now i need to know what kind of power supply i should go with. I was thinking of going with a 550w but im not sure if thatll be enough. Also im gonna play it out with the cooling through fans. If that doenst work out too well ill go with the liquid cooling. Can someone help me with what power supply i should go with?

Wouldn't skimp on the pwr supply with that one deschain. Put that in an Antec Super Lanboy case with 120 mm fans and give it some air at least. Fluid cooling would cost you extra for sure but might be worth doing. Add a couple SATA drives and hold on tight. Let us know how it works out!

550w should be enough, unless you plan to do some serious overclocking.
A large case (Antec makes very good ones) with two sets of fans should provide enough cooling for most purposes.
