I won't know what power supply to even look for if I don't know recommended wattages, amperages, voltages, and all that cool long worded stuff :3
I know for a fact that my chosen processor needs 100 watts, it's an AMD A6-3650. Both the Central Processor and the Graphics Processor.
Then Kingston DDR3 SDRAM, 1066 Hz. Voltage is 1.5, but I'd need the amperage to calculate the wattage, and I was never able to hold onto that equation anyway, it always confused me.
And a Western Digital Caviar Blue 7200 RPM Drive, don't know the voltage/amperage, thus Idk the wattage.
I also plan to add the old HDD from my dads old, scrapped Gateway Desktop. I refuse to throw 250 Gigs out the window. Also 7200 RPMs
Of course the board, ASRock A75M-HVS FM1 AMD A75...Not sure on how much power that demands,
I also plan to add a PCI or PCI-e Wireless Adapter, because I'm not buying a 50 foot ethernet cord :3 Haven't chosen one yet though.
As for the monitor, I do believe they rely on the wall. I haven't messed with a desktop in so long I don't even know anymore XD I'm pretty sure that hasn't changed since 8th grade, so now down to what we're all here to discuss.
I know for a fact I NEED 100 watts, as for the rest, I'm not sure. I know some of you will recommend a 450 watt this or a 500 watt that, but I want to keep it plain and simple and just know how many watts are recommend as per your intelligence and not some calculator. This way I can choose on my own. :3 Please, and thank you Take your time as I'm not going to be buying any of those parts any time soon. You guys are the greatest, Cheers.
