built in part checker says there is no compatability issues but it seems wrong was wondering if there was someone smarter than me who knows more about the subject than me. Please respond

I'm fairly certain your psu is liable to blow up. Idk, Vitacomp probably knows better than I do.

I think you have your brands confused.

Seaonic for sure doesn't have any psu's that are going to blow up, that is Diablotek territory, Seasonic makes all of there own psu's which is rare and they are the one of the very few comapnies besides Detla, XFX which are just rebranded Seasonic psu's and Superflower that you can buy based on name because they don't have any crappy psu's.

You don't want to leave enough space for a discrete video card eventually? It wouldn't cost much more to get a decent 500W+ PSU.

Either way, a 400W PSU should be plenty for a build without a video card. Are you worried its too much? That's not possible. A 1600W PSU would work just fine (although at such a low energy draw, it wouldn't be that efficient since PSUs tend to work best at ~50-80% load I believe).

Ahh. I was looking at one of your saved part lists. Did you change from an APU to a FX CPU?

This could be easier to Judge if you would just listed the link to the Actual Build .. ??

When in Doubt Go with a Top Notch PSU.. Honestly.. I would run my Build off of the Bubble Wrap while Saving up for a Case if it helped me out with the extra $20 to get a Quality PSU vs some pile of rubbish. And Normally the price difference is honestly less than 20 dollars Grin

Examples of a Good PSU From my Favorites:

SeaSonic S12G 550W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply

EVGA SuperNOVA GS 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

EVGA SuperNOVA GS 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

EVGA 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

When in Doubt.. Just stick with One of These and you will be Good to Go for an ATX Build in My Humble Opinion..

Fun Times !!
