    Question M2 atx and Core 2 Duo

    I Just bought an intel motherboard with the GM31 chipset , a core 2 Duo 2.5Ghz x 2 processor , a 350gb 3.5" HDD and a M2 ATX 160W PSU. and now it got me thinking... will the PSU have enough power to handle this setup?

    probably. My m2 powers my intel dg45FC board with a 3.0ghz core 2 duo processor just fine. I've also got a host of other accessories. I do have a 2.5 hard drive though.
