Diseaseboy said:Is an Antec 550watt powersupply enough to run 2- 2.8 Xeons with EMT64 , a Asus NCCH-DL motherboard, 2 sticks of 512 pc3100 memory, 2 cd-rom drives, 2 serial ATA hard drives and a Geforce 6800 Ultra?
may i ask what all that is for?NerveGas said:Yep, it'll be plenty. I've got a rack of dual Xeons with as many as 6 drives each that are loaded nearly all day long - and they've only got 325 watt power supplies.
In fact, I've measured actual power draw at the wall on a number of dual-proc systems, and I have yet to see one that actually draws more than 325 watts - but that's without the 6800 Ultra, which will add an extra 80 watts or so under full load.
I do have a couple of machines for which the 550-watt power supply simply wouldn't cut it, but they've both got 4 processers and a whole lot of disks.
