Can Corsair VS650 power this system..

I'm a newbie builder and this will be my 1st budget gaming build. I want to ask if my parts are compatible with each other and if I would still have headroom for expansion and also maybe 2 Radeon GPUs when I save some money.

The system will be composed of these parts:

RAM
G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB(2x4gb) DDR3 1600 Kit
Optical Drive
LG GH24NS95-BK DVD-RW Sata Black
Case
Aerocool Vs-3 Casing Black
PSU
Corsair VS650
Motherboard
Gigabyte GA-Z87M-D3H
CPU
i5-4670k
HDD
Seagate 1TB 7200RPM 64MB, ST1000DM003 (SATA 6 Gb/s)

Can the PSU power the system? Im looking forward to overclock when I get some cooling parts along the way.

I will accept any ideas and arguments..

THANKS!

    It will run your current specs with ease and 1 video card.

    I wouldn't overclock with it , because it's a budget power supply.

    But would it still have enough to power up a high end GPU and lets say, 5 fans?
  3. A single decent GPU and 5 fans ,yes.
  4. Thanks but I have to clarify something? Im choosing in between brands of Gigabyte, MSI and ASRock and I really like to pick Giga coz I saw a lot of positive comments about it here but a friend of mine who is a pro builder said to only take MSI or ASRock.. What could you suggest?

    These are my choices :

    MSI Z87M-G43
    Gigabyte GA-Z87M-D3H
    ASRock Z87 Pro3

    Seeing that the same parts above will be fitted in the one that I will choose here.

    Thank you again in advance
