Corsair VS650 PSU

I am needing a new PSU and am wanting to know if this one will work with my system: Corsair VS650 650W. Also, how many SATA drives can I use with this PSU and is it a good PSU?

Here are my specifications:
Mainboard : ASRock M3A785GMH/128M
Processor : AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor (4C 3.2GHz, 2GHz IMC, 4x 512kB L2, 6MB L3)
Video Adapter : ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series (10CU 800SP SM5.0 850MHz, 1GB DDR5 4.8GHz 128-bit, PCIe 2.00 x16)

  1. That is more than enough wattage to power the system you have currently. 500W minimum for you. But it is a good quality assured PSU as it is from Corsair and Corsair tend to use Seasonic parts (whom are one of the all-time PSU developers). According to the websites specifications you can power 4 SSD/HDD's which is more than enough.

    Hi - that vs650 is way more than sufficient to power that system. It has 50amps avail
    on the +12v rail or about dbl what you need. It is a CWT built unit (not Seasonic), which
    is not a bad thing.

    It has 4 SATA & 4periperal (molex) connectors.
  3. Its more than sufficient and can even support crossfire or sli of 77xx or 650s
  4. Will it plug into my motherboard? By that I mean, does it have the correct connectors? Also, I have a DVD RW/CR Drive that is IDE... will this still work with this PSU?
  5. Yes it will work no issues in that
    For mobo 20+4 pin cnnctr
    And 4+4 or 8pin cnnctr for cpu cnnction
    And molex power connector for ide dvd drive
