Hello everyone i just got a really quick question, will the PSU be enough for this rig?

I'm not gonna overclock anything, i will use only what's on the list + a dvd reader.

i would go for atleast 600watt.add a asus sound card to that comp would be perfect.

The integrated sound with motherboard is good enough for me.
But why? I don't think the cpu and gpu is gonna run at its max with the games i play

A good brand name 500w PSU such as Seasonic , XFX , Corsair , Antec will run that system.

You don't need a sound card.

the guys not got a lot of money well worth every penny. i use ocz 850watt so its no like i dont know wot im speaking about. if it was me i would get more than 500watt but thats perfect for the money you will find it very hard to get modular for better price.
