I was wondering if this power supply will be sufficient for my new system that I am building.

Cool Master eXtreme Power 600 Watt

I am planning on overclocking my system. These are the componets:

E6400 Core2Duo
Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3
Zalman 9500 LED CPU fan
7600 GS PCI-e video card
probably 1 GB of ram
2 DVD-RW drives
250 GB SATA HDD
200 GB ATA HDD

I think 600 watts should be enough to power my system. Does anyone have any experience with this power supply?

For your system you need 15 amps plus 2-4 for safety margin on the 12v rails.
This power supply has 36 amps on the 12v rails.
Coolermaster is not among the best known brands.

I'd rather not have a computer then use that psu, coolermasters suck hard. This psu is a much better choice.

To be fair some of the higher wattage coolermasters aren't too bad. I wouldn't say this one is one of the higher quality ones though.
