you are on the limits.8400gs draws 120-130watts when it is load and i3 2121 about 70-80watts.that means that you will be in the limits,cause you will use 220wattin a 260watt psu and it might be dangerous.and dont forget to check if you have a reliable psu,cause i had a 450w psu with q6600 and 9800gtx and itit got burned(smoke all over the room)cause it wasnt reliable

Your PSU will be running maxed out all the time nearly. this isn't a good idea especially with low quality PSU's because they can damage the rest of the system if they burn out. I would suggest a new psu:)

i mean that it will be very risky because you will max out the psu.sorry but i wouldnt do such thing..you should buy a 450-500 watt for about 35-50$.
