I am building a budget gaming pc for my friend. I am not sure if 350W is enough.
Here is the build
cpu - pentium g2020 2.9 ghz
mobo - gigabyte b75(not sure about model)
memory - corsair 4gb ddr3 1600 ram(single stick)
hdd - seagate barracuda 1tb
monitor - dell e1914h
will buy gpu a few weeks later. Will most likely be a gtx 650 or hd 7750(so at best 65W).
For this build, will a coolermaster cm 350w psu be enough?
There is no need to think about future upgrades. He will not add any more hardware later.

One more question.
He is also going to buy a creative 5.1 surround speaker system for Rs 5000 with this build.
Even though his budget is tight, he really needs this 5.1 surround.
So, is the onboard chip enough for the 5.1 surround system, or do i have to buy a sound card like the creative sound blaster?

A Geforce GTX 650 needs 20 amps on the 12v rail and a 400 watt power supply.
A Radeon HD 7750 needs 16 amps and a 400 watt power supply.


That Cooler master power supply is poor quality.

The next available psu is 500W and costs Rs 1000 more. He doesn't want to pay 1000 rupees more for the psu.
And his parents won't allow him to buy parts from another shop. Since he won't be doing any future upgrades, would the 350w be enough?

If you go to cheap on a PSU , you put your other components at risk.
