Recommended PSU for an X5000 setup?

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a PSU wattage for an X5000 set-up?

I bought a 600 watt Zalman, but it turned out to be non-modular (I'm determined to make this machine tidy!), so I got a 450 watt Corsair semi-modular. But now I'm wondering if the 450 will be enough.

I don't imagine the P5020 requires too much. Here's what else I intend to have:
Radeon 7850 GFX
2 HHDs, 1 SSD, 1 DVD
Sound card
sii3112
I believe a network card will be required
The case I have has 3x120mm fans, and I'll probably get a fan controller

@daveyw

The most hungry is the 7850, which tdp is ~110W
The P5020 does ~30W
Motherboard 25-40W
Expansion cards, memory dimms: ~50W

A quality 450W PSU should be more then enough.


My own measurements with a Watt-meter show that none of my Windows pc's do more then 220W on 100% load. Intel i5 or i7 systens with Radeon 7750 and 7950 cards.

@daveyw

Check what power your gfx card requires. I know a lot of bigger gfx cards require about 500+ to work.

@daveyw

Just for future reference in case anybody reads through. The P5020 data sheet says max power is less than 30W.

With that in mind, you might use this PSU calculator, and choose the Core i3-6100T since its TDP isn't much more at 35W.

Afterwards, just enter everything else normally since it should be off the shelf hardware.

@Antique

Yes, you're right, Sapphire do recoomend 500W min.

Still, I have an Antec 520 modular powering my A1-XE. I would possibly swap them around if I have problems.

Makes for intersting reading. Curious to see what impact the L3 cache has.

I have a 750W PSU in my X5000. That's because I want to try Crossfire some day.
