Will 620HX provide enough


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the 620HX would provide enough power for my current config and will the 4pin ATX reach to the top from a bottom mount PSU?


Asus P5K

E6600 Quad Core

2 gigs Corsair CM2x1024-6400C4

GForce 7600GS 256mb PCI

WD 74 Gig Raptor, WD 320 Sata2, WD 250 Sata2

External Seagate FreeAgent Pro 750 (USB2) &

WD MyBook 500 (USB2)


Multi Card Reader

Antec 900 Gamer Case

3x120mm & 1x200mm case fans

Using 42 Plasma TV as monitor

Currently using Antec TruePower Trio 650

All on when computer starts

Heavy Video editing and Photoshop CS3 usage.


I am having some problems with the current PSU so would like to replace it.

I do plan to add more RAM in the near future (2gig) and another WD 74 gig Raptor in Raid 0 config.

Even the VX450 would be more than enough to power your rig. Both your cpu & video card will pull less than 100W under load.


The main 24-pin/4-pin/8-pin power cables are 22" compared to 20" on your Antec Trio.


The Antec Trio's have a 5 yr. warranty so be sure to contact Antec about an RMA. The process takes about 2 weeks.

EliteKiller is correct, the 450w would be sufficient for your current system configuration. If you plan on upgrading to a next generation video card you may want to go with the HX520w, and if you plan to do an SLI configuration you may want a HX620w. The cables on all the power supplies should be long enough for a bottom mounted PSU case.
