A local professional told me to get this upgrade kit:
I'm planning on running it with a Geforce GTX 750ti and a pair of 6.0Gb/s hard drives.
I have a PSU that is 600W, but it only has a 4-pin CPU power connector to hook up to the motherboard.
You'll notice that the motherboard in that upgrade kit has an 8-pin CPU power connector socket.
You will also notice that the CPU that comes bundled with it requires 125W.
Will I get enough juice to run this thing? Or will I need a PSU with an 8-pin CPU power connector cable?
EDIT: For what it's worth, I was able to run a computer, using the GTX 750ti and two hard drives, without any difficulty, using a Gigabyte Z87M-D3H motherboard, two 4GB ram sticks, and an Intel Pentium G3220 (dual core, 3.00GHz). There are only three things I'm upgrading, and you can see all three of them in the upgrade kit link I provided above.
The biggest issue I'm seeing is with the CPU. My old CPU only needed 54 watts. This new one seems to need more than twice that amount.
Am I in the clear, right now?
