    Question Tagan PSU!!!

    Hey...

    I'm planning to buy a Tagan TG380-U01 PSU

    Now, what I'm interested in is: IS 380W ENOUGH??

    Here are specifications:
    Model Tagan TG380-UO1
    AC input 95-250VAC 10/6A 60/50Hz
    DC Output.....................+3.3V...+5V...+12V.....|-12V...-5V....+5VSB
    Max Output Current...........28A....37A....22A.....|..1A....0.8A.....2.5A
    Max Output Combined............220W......264W...|12W...4W....12.5W
    ...............................................360W............|..........28W...........
    Total Power.................................................380W.........................


    What do I need it for?
    P4C@ 2.8GHz
    Asus P4C800
    2x512 DDR PC400 TwinMos
    Leadtek A280LE GF4 Ti4200 8x
    1xDVD-ROM
    1xDVD+/-RW
    1xCD/RW
    3xHDD@7200rpm (160+40+200GB)
    1xFDD

    ISDN adapter
    NIC
    Sound blaster
    PCI IDE RAID controller
    TV tuner

    USB Printer+Mouse+Keyboard

    480W is about 60% more expensive here.... that's 2 much 4 me...

    WHAT DO YOU THINK?????

    Check out this slightly out dated power usage chart and calculation from PCPowerAndCooling.

    For overall power supply wattage, add the requirement for each device in your system, then multiply by 1.8. (The multiplier takes into account that today’s systems draw disproportionally on the +12V output. Furthermore, power supplies are more efficient and reliable when loaded to 30% - 70% of maximum capacity.)
    That should allow you to get a rough idea of your power needs.

    If you are spending that much money on a system (p4, DVD writer, 3 HDs...) I'd spend a little more on something like an Antec True Power 430w. They are pretty bullet proof and can generally take up to about 500w before they overheat and shut down. I do not know of the brand you mention.

    Rojas how much are you paying for it

    Antec True power 430W will give you close to 400W on all 3 important lines, instead of max 220W for 3,3V and 5V and max 264 for 12V combined

    It costs about 120$ in JAE (SLO), and I guess the price shouldnt be much different in Croatia
    Oh and if you get it from SLO you can get tax refund and pay a bit less then 100$ for it
