Just wondering if 460W is enough for this build:
The total watt says 325W and I have an unused power supply that can be used, the only thing that concerns me is that the total power draw on the 12V is 324W. Can I get away with using that power supply?
I wouldn't use that ancient PSU. It would likely either die, kill your system, set on fire, or all of above.
I would get a Corsair CX450M instead.
Thanks, welp looks like I'm shopping again.
That ancient PSU might work or chance on fire when you hit the 12V rail with a large load
yes, you can get away with it. the question is simply 'for how long?'. a few months perhaps. get something better, or you risk your system, your house, and even possibly yourself.
Thanks for the feedback, my concerns were well founded then.
I would not want to be the guy who's death was caused by PSU.
nah, I'd rather die to a GPU.
