    I will probably built a FM1 setup using this:

    BOARD http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138334

    CPU http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819106001

    HDD (Already have it) http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136513

    and 2 sticks of 4 gigs ddr3-1866mhz.

    Using this setup with onboard video only, a dvd burner and a case with one 120mm fan will I have enough power from a 365w psu?

    I have this old model but almost new Enermax ATX 24P VER. 1.3
    EG365P-VE

    +3.3V 32A
    +5V 32A
    +12V 26A
    -5V 1A
    -12V 1A
    +5.5VSb 2.2A
    +3.3V & 5V 185W
    Total power 350W

    Thx for answer.

    Yes your fine. That memory is an overkill. Make sure the brand and type of memory is on the list of supported memory for that board. Memory is the #1 cause of problems with HTPC

    Krazy Owl do you look at NCIX sometimes? They come out cheaper than newegg.ca after the customs duties. I'm in Montréal too...

    Got it for free from local store who give me dead psu's. The guy told me "Here we dont mess around with broken psus. I figured out the trouble was only that the 110/210 volts switch on the psu was at 220. :p Brought it back to the store he tested it and ran fine !
