    I'm in the process of building (well, ordering) a pc. I'm pretty satisfied with the components I have selected, but I'm starting to wonder if the 500W PSU that comes with the Antec Sonata III case will be enough.
    I've created a shopping cart on this website (Norwegian): http://prisguide.hardware.no/calc_wa...ggon_id=101191

    I would love some comments on the rest of the build too :)


    AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition
    Antec Sonata III
    Asus M4A78-E
    Nec AD-7220S
    OCZ Gold XTC 4096 MB DDR2 PC6400
    Samsung Spinpoint F1 1 TB
    Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 1 GB

    It's always good to get another opinion.

    It'd be nice if we could see your build.

    Assuming there's no SLI/Crossfire involved, a 500W Antec should be fine.

    Well, no...he WILL be fine. Those Antec supplies are great, and that build isn't going to really stress it at all.

    4890 isn't worth it.

    It will work, Just, I recommend anything else because Antec's psu's are nice and all but they Die decently Fast :-(

    Don't get the 4890, it is much more money for a 5 fps increase get a 4870 or something else.
