Regarding SMPS and RAM support for AMD FX-8150 in my ASUS AM3+ M5A88-M Motherboard
Posted on 2013-01-24
I have an ASUS AM3+ M5A88-M Motherboard with Phenon II 1055T Six core processor with NVIDIA GT630 2 GB PCI-EXPRESS VIDEO card. I have connected my PC to a LED FUll HD TV's HDMI port through the NVIDIA GT630's mini HDMI to HDMI cable. I have 2 SATA Hard disks and one Internal SATA DVD Writer and I am planning to add a SATA Blue Ray Internal DVD Writer. I also have a couple of USB external hard disk attached to my PC.
I have a Hunt Key 500 watt SMPS. I am planning to upgrade to AMD FX-8150 processor along with four 4 GB 1866 MHz DDR3 RAM modules.
Will my ASUS M5A88-M Motherboard support four 4 GB 1866 MHz DDR3 RAM modules if I upgrade to AMD FX-8150 processor. Will my 500 watt SMPS be able to take the load or should I have atleast a 600 watt SMPS.
Please repply as soon as possible.
Thanks and Regards,
