Hello guys, I was wondering if my Power Supply (Antec 620W High Current Gamer Modular PSU) will be powerful enough for my upcoming build (below) (I might overclock to about 4.0-4.2ghz). I was also wondering if I would be able to make a half Hackintosh (Windows 8 and OSX dual booted) on this build. It doesn't really matter but it would be nice to be able to run Mountain Lion on there. I will definitely be running windows 8 on this build whether or not I can install Mountain Lion.
Here are my build components:

CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K
Case: Antec X1-E Gaming USB3.0 Mid Tower Case
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB ST1000DM003
PSU: Antec 620W High Current Gamer Modular PSU
GPU: MSI N660TI-2GD5/OC 2GB DDR5 660TI
FAN: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws-X 8G Kit(4Gx2) DDR3 1866
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 Motherboard
DVD: LiteOn Internal Blu-Ray Combo SATA RW IHES312(B)
SSD: SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD 128 GB SATA 6.0 Gbps
Headset: Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 Stereo Gaming Headset
Webcam: Logitech HD Webcam C270, 720p

Thanks In advance!

Your PSU is excellent. It's made by Seasonic and is of impeccable quality. You should be fine.

Let me explain.

Antec's High Current Gamer series is made by not Antec themselves, but they contacted the OEM Seasonic to build it to their specifications, whilst Antec designed the style of the PSU.

This is an article on Apple's Boot camp. This tells you specifications, requirements and how to use it. And my mistake, yes it does. I don't know a lot about Mac's. I don't use them. -

Now do you understand, because if I didn't know this stuff, I wouldn't be answering your question by now.
