Is my PSU enough?

Hello.

I am planning to buy a new PC this year.

I want to ask if my NZXT Hale82 v2 550w will be enough.:http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/131-hale-82-v2-power-supplies

Build:

CPU:Intel core i7 4770k
GPU:EVGA GTX 780
MOBO:MSI z87 Mpower MAX
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600mhz CL9
SSD: OCZ Vertex 120GB
HDD: Western Digital 500GB

I'm going to Overclock the CPU to around 4.5GHZ.

Thanks.

  1. I think so.
    Even stressed to the top with furmark a Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4.3GHz + GTX 780 system barely broke the 400W global power consumption barrier on some test that I've read.
  2. it will suffice but better go with a 650w one. it will leave you more room for overclocking and it will run cooler and quieter than the 550w .psu are more efficient on 50% load

    GeForce GTX 780 - 42A and a 600W PSU minimum recomendation so with 41.25A the nzxt on the 12v rail is on the edge.
