I understand.Thank you!So if I can't get that fast a better Power supply,is anything wrong if I'll use the old one?
 
You did not specify what PSU you have, But if it is a cheapee, it's probably a "piss" poor quality. Most of them will only handle 50-> 60% of rated load and that is taking a chance that it does not implode taking out your other "New" components.

It's a Delux 600V or something.And also I've just tried to assamble all components and suprise nothing shows on monitor.I attend to believe that the problem is the compatibility between MotherBoard and Ram Mem.RAM has 1600GHZ and on Motherboard says 1333/1066 and 2000 OverClock and also the Power supply.I'm right?
 
Most ram will default to the 1333 speed and you have to tell it to run at its rated speed, at least on Intel systems.
Not a AMD guy, but I've heard that some AMD systems have a problem with higher than 1600 and a few with 1600. But again on a new installation it should default to the "spec" of 1066 or 1333.

I could label manure as "delux"mauure, but it will not smell like a rose, still smells like SXXX - You know what (LOL) Myself for PSU, may skimp on other parts but not this one, I look for a "Brand" name that has a review that indicates it is in the top 2 tiers (tier 1's normally to expensive for me).
 
No - do not do that, just my opinion, take for what's worth. Don't think anyone has ever mention that about my post's, but always a first
I could be all wet so if you have a review on his PSU that states otherwise, I'll stand corrected.

So in other words Asus M48ATD with vengeance Corsair 4x4gb ddr3 1600 MHz with sapphire 6950 Radeon hd with AMD x6 Phenom || 1055T and with a presumptive psi 800v or more are all those together perfect compatible?than you in advance.

Get a Corsair, Antec, XFX, or Seasonic power supply. 500 watts is more than enough if you aren't going to Crossfire. If you plan on adding another 6950 down the road, then a 650+ watt unit is recommended.

My bad, should have quoted the first post, didn't mean to made it seem like that was to you. :??:

Was more of a bad joke, the "does power supply really matter" seemed to me rather low amounts of research or a troll attempt. I found out very quickly when I started researching that PSU is a very important part of your system.

I went corsair TX850. Way overkill for my system, but I now have lots of headroom for upgrades and it's also now more future-proof. Was originally going for the TX750, but was able to get the TX850 for just $10 more.
