Friends of mine recommended 430+ wattage because of the graphics card. Not necessary?
Also, as far as the actual hackintosh install for this build, will sleep mode work? Is there any way to know? (Based on board?)
Anyway, thanks a lot for the post. Very generous of you. Building it soon, hopefully.
Just buying a PSU that has "500" or "700" watts means nothing. It is how they are using and what they are using to get 500 or more watts. Your system will never pull more then say 380 watts (my estimate). The 500 watt I listed will be solid for you for many years.
Also I would buy the Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB which is a little more money because they have a longer warrenty and are built much stronger.
