    Default Do I need bigger PSU for my configuration?

    SG33G5
    Intel E6550
    2 GB dual channel DDR2-800 MHz PC6400 Crucial Ballistic
    eVGA GeForce 8600 GTS 512 MB
    Hitachi Deskstar T7k500 500 GB SATA 3 Gb/s
    Samsung DVD burner

    What do you think? Also with this setup, do I need a more powerful power supply as the stock one is 250 W? If so, what are my power supply option?

    Thanks.

    The PSU supplied with the SG33G5 will be sufficient for your configuration.
    There's also an optional 300W PSU available if your looking for more power.

    What difference does it make if I use 250 W or 300 W performance wise with this setup? If there are no difference in PC performance besides bigger Wattage, then I will stick with 250 W. My concern is performance as I want optimal performance, if there is a slight increase in performance, how much? This PC is mainly 95% for HDTV usage and 5% for games.

    Thanks.

    Having a bigger power supply would enable future upgrades,
    if you are not planning on adding more components into the system, then its all fine.

    I have no plan to add more components to this system. The system will be set like this for a while. The only addition I am thinking of is another HD if I am running out of space and/or a PCI sound card. And that's a big IF if I have money burning my pocket. lol

    Can the PSU handle an addition of another HD and PCI sound card?

    Thanks.

    If your not gonna be running heavy loading stuffs, it'll be fine.
