    Hey everyone. I have been out of the PC world a long time so I need some help on a up and coming build that I am doing. The background of the build is to play games and heavy computing, such as running multiple networking clients and VmWare Clients. I am no Extreme gamer or anything, but I do like pretty pixels. I play a lot of Call of Duty, Steam Games, and World of Warcraft. I know its a old game but the graphics can be crushed when settings are on high and your in a 25 man raid... Thats the basics of the work of the computer, I do a lot of my actual work on a Mac....

    I am wondering that my current PSU a Antec Neo 650w is capable to handle this system with zero Over clocks.


    Motherboard: ASUS M4A77TD
    Video Card: Sapphire 4870
    CPU: PhenomII X4 955
    Memory: 2x Crucial DDR3 1066
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar 1TB
    DVD Drive: Asus DRW
    CPU Cooler: Corsair Cooling Hydro Liquid Cooling

    And I am anal on cooling so I will have a fan running in every spot where they can fit. So it needs to also support a fan controller, and 5-10 fans. And I will be bringing over 2-3 hard drives from my current computer also.

    Should handle all of those with no problem and some more.

    You should be fine as long as the PSU is healthy.

    that psu for your setup is actually a bit overkill tbh...
