Hello everyone, I am getting ready to put together my server desktop and I was wondering if i would need to worry about the psu. the system is going to be base on an hp xw 8600 work station using this motherboard http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-XW8600-Workstation-Dual-771-System-Motherboard-480024-001-/391051392429?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5b0c7ab5ad

it will have two quad core xeon x5450 cpus with a tdp of 120 watts, 12 gigs of ram with 8 fb dims (4x 1gb sticks and 4 x2 gb sticks), an nvidia gtx 570 video card 1 dvd-rw drive, 2 hard drives(1 1tb and 1 650 gb) a sound blaster audigy pci sound card and 4 fans.

this is the psu for the system http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-XW8600-800-Watt-Power-Supply-444096-001-444411-001-DPS-800LB-/141571545617?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20f6525a11

should i have any concerns about the psu?

thanks in advances guys.

personally speaking I would choose a PSU from a more 'premium' vendor that's at least 80+bronze, especially since this is going to be a server build. The wattage is probably fine, I just question build quality and reliability.

well from my research the mb will only work with the properietary psu. plus it does say 80 plus on the psu but i cant read if it says bronze, silver etc. I have heard delta electronics make good psus for servers from other other sources as well.

so i shouldnt have to worry? thats good i didnt think so but i wanted to make sure. im pretty excited about this build. eventually im goin to upgrade the gpu but the gtx 570 is still a kick ass card so i may wait till the dx 12 cards comes out. and will windows 8 detect dual cpus? i know win 7 pro and and ultimate do.
