We get a sniff of Intel's discrete graphics plans.

Beyond3D revealed the future Intel discrete graphics plans with slides from the Visual Computing Group. The architecture is based on 10+ mini-cores that has 10mm2 die size and 6.25W TDP each. Each core has 16-wide 512-bit vector unit capable of executing VLIW instructions. 10 of such cores will be sharing at least 4MB of L2 cache and has a total die size at 140mm2 and 90W TDP. Performance could hit 1.2TFlops. The slides also revealed some fixed functions units and a high-bandwidth memory I/O. Most probably the first card will be pairing up with GDDR5 memories to provide an off-die bandwidth of more than 150GB/s.

Hi, im doing a build for someone and have around £50 to spend on the PSU; it has to power

Asus P5B
1 or 2gb ddr2 ram
Intel Core 2 Duo e4300 @ ~ 3Ghz (1.3V)
Leadtek 7800GTX 256mb / 8600GT
Sound card and other small misc stuff like a couple case fans, an after marked HSF etc..

The system with my Corsair PSU is pulling ~ 200W (0.8A) ( i know wattage isnt the only important thing)

So im between

CoolerMaster IGreen Power 430W/ 500W
Seasonic 430W
Silverstone SST400W
Enermax Coolergiant 380W (dont think so but if itll do..)
Enermax Noisetaker 370W
400W FSP Sparkle Blue storm

Currently between the Igreen, FSP or Seasonic

The iGreen looks like the best bet at that pricepoint, or maybe the Silverstone

Yeah the IGreen is a good unit and likely to be one of the quietest. If not the IGreen, maybe the FSP.

500w would be best. I think you're gonna be cutting it a bit fine with the 430w tbh.
