    Atom 330 or E5300?

    Hi guys,

    I think I've seen a similar post around here somewhere about whether it would be best to go for the dual-core E5300 or the Atom 330, and performance wise obviously the E5300 is the one to go for, but I'm worried about whether I can reliably power it?

    If I went for the E5300 then I would be using an mATX mobo with 4gb RAM, a Seagate 320gb 2.5" laptop hard drive, an ATI HD 4550 graphics card and a PCI WiFi card. I would also want the 8" touchscreen powered from the PSU too for reliability and longevity.

    My question - would this PSU cope with my requirements?

    The reason I ask is that the E5300, mATX mobo, WiFi card and GFX card come out CHEAPER than the Zotac ION N330 combo, and it has triple the computing power!

    Let me know what you think, or if you can suggest a PSU that will do the trick I would be most grateful!

    Cheers, Mase.
