    Recommended (minimum) power supply is 500w (from AMD specs)

    I checked and was told 450 will do fine BUT, I have changed it to 550W. Thanks for the heads up

    I think I forgot something.!! I have that wireless card fitted but it does not have an RJ45 cable socket! I might have to add a cable card later as I prefer cable but wanted the options I did not have now. Rig is in testing phase so might be able to add. If I had brains left, I'd be clever!!

    Your MB has an RJ45 cable socket and network controller, you don't need anything else. Power cable may come with PSU.
