    could somebody let me know what kind of PSU I would need for an A10 7850K, I figured a 500w coolermaster would do but just wondered if it was overkill. I have no idea how an integrated GPU differs from one going through the PCI-e as far as power requirements go. cheers.

    500 watts should be plenty with no dedicated GPU and a few hdd's with A10 7850k.

    Quality PSU is more important than Watts.

    Also a10 7850k requires FM2+ motherboard not FM2.

    I've got my 7850K in a mitx setup and running it off a Silverstone 450W SFX PSU at the moment :) Pretty fun little setup actually!

    yeah i was kind of wondering if anybody's running it with ~200w in an itx case kind of thing. if its 95 watt + RAM + 2.5" hdd really can't be that much more than 150w required.
