    Hi guys. I've got an old PC - Pentium 4 3.00GHz HT, 3GB DDR2 RAM, 1TB SATA HDD, nVidia GeForce FX 5600, 350W PSU.

    I'm going to upgrade my PC with following upgrades:

    Motherboard - Intel DQ965GF

    CPU - Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz

    GPU - nVidia Geforce GT610 2GB.

    I'm worried, that my PSU will not be able to handle all this hardware, but I don't have any money for new, better PSU.

    Will my PSU handle this CPU + GPU?

    CHANGE that PSU,it's too weak and old to handle the new power load!Buy only ANTEC,Corsair,HighPower/SIRTEC brand and no more than 500W.

    I don't think, that an GT610 and Core 2 Duo will need 500W PSU, I would go for 400-450W... But I don't have money for this moment.
