Core2 Setup UAD-1e - which power supply

I'm planning to upgrade my system:

Asus P5B Deluxe
Intel Core2 Duo
ARtic Cooler
2x 1024 MB D-ATA DDR2-800

(btw: anyone experiences with this combination ?)

and crossgrade from UAD! to UAD1-e

I'm a bit confused about these new PCI Interfaces. I will probably have a PCIx16 graphics card, the UAD1-e, a RME HDSP9632, and maybe a PCI powercore, so there's at least 2 PCI-express cards in there. I was looking for a cheap but decent power supply, and found the LC-Power Green something... 550W. The description says it has one PCI-Express connection.

Do those PCI-e cards need a separate power connection from the power supply ? Which power supply would be suitable ?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help.

Btw.: @ Moderators: What about a \"working Core2 Duo setups\" Topic in the TEch section ?

Sorry, I've been way too busy lately, but you're right; I'll take care of this soon.


I went for the the Antec TruePower 2 for my set-up (v similar to yours) but to be honest can't recommend or advise any further.

I went for this as I bought an Antec case and it was one of the recommended power supplies for the case.
