Hello,

I have a question, i am going to build an new system.

Socket AM3 motherboard
Phenom II 955
6 gig ddr3 ram
1 tb HD
Blue-Ray burner
And my existing XFX9600GSO GPU.

Now i have a question ,maybe someone can help me,
What for power supply (watts) are the "normal"requirements.
I don't want a huge suply that not needed.

Hmm i may be wrong but think you had mixed up AM3 and i7 mobos capability hehe The i7 runs tri channel while AM3 runs dual channel hence you would be looking at 2 x 2 instead of 3 x 2 DDR3 The PSU is directly related to how powerful a GPU set up u running and with yours an Earthwatts 430 or Corsair VX400 would suffice ^^ Curiously: i am assuming you are rigging up for blue ray/HTPC? I'd just go with a P2X3 710

I use my PC normally for gaming, but i also watch streaming and movies on my tv (DVI,second monitor). Thats why i want a blue-ray in my "new"pc.

But thanx for the answer, i didn't know that of the memory banks.
I did look first at the i7 thats why i made the asumption of the memory.
But i am a fanboy of AMD,so i am going again for AMD.!!!
