Yes that's plenty. You could probably run sli with this psu if you don't do any insane overclocks.

650W is more than enough for this rig. You can hook up multiple gpus with that kind of power,

Hey guys I'm in a similar situation, also building a new pc, and I picked the corsair builder series cx 500w modular. Will it power up this specs well, if I do only a slight overclock, maybe to 4.1 or 4.2 ghz?

CX Series is for budget builds an not meant for overclocking.

Ok so do you consider this a good build for gaming?

- i5 3470;
- msi twin frozr gtx 660 oc 2gb;
- 8gb ram corsair vengeance (2x4);
- asus p8z77-v LK motherboard;
- corsair cx 500w modular.

The reason I want a z77 chipset motherboard is because in case I ever get an overclockable CPU, I have a motherboard that can overclock it.

Sorry I'm from Portugal so I can't get products from newegg... I'm choosing the parts from amazon, is the XFX PRO450W Core edition a good PSU for i5 3470 and gtx 650 ti 2gb SSC (I changed my mind). ? The reason I want modular is because of the cable clutter, I hate that...
