  1. It's borderline; The 12v rail rating is 20, probably lower than the recommended value. Fry's has a 700w coolermaster on sale right now for around $80 after rebate and antec 550w for $60 (no rebate) or check newegg for corsair models.
  2. o okay thanks
  3. Every once in a while buy.com has some real bargains. The Corsair VX550 is currently available at buy.com for $64.24 and shipping is free:

    The VX450 has a 33 amp +12v rail and could easily power the system in the wishlist, but the deals Johnnylucky has provided are a better option for future upgradeability.
  5. Yes it will run the current specified system.But for upgrading,I recommend a 550-600watt PSU with 45amps on the 12volt rail.This will help with future upgrades like video cards,CPU,and adding more drives.Goodluck.
