I have just gone and brought the above proccessor and a new Motherboard and new ram and case. I am still waiting for the ram atm, so the pc has not been started. I was wondering when i added the heat sink which come with the Processor it has a heat pad on it alreay. Is it a good idea to remove this pad and get some good quality heat paste( forgot the name), and add that instead. Or will the normal thing be ok.
Also will a 350watt powe supply be ok to power :
2 Cdroms Drives
Geforce 5200 FX
k8vt800 Pro MotherBoard (Gigabyte)
4 Case Fans
1 Processor Fan
2 Cathode lights
1 led Strope light
Or is it asking to much, do i need to upgrade to 500 watt or even more!
I know i can find out when i turn it ok but i am not getting the rest for a few days so would have the chance to get a new Power Supplly before then ready. Or will i just have to wait and see if it will start up.
Thanks for all the help!
I have found a good and cheap 450watt PSU would this be powerfull enough???????
