Hi,
I'm building a new pc it's specifications are:

Video card:MSI NX8800GTS-T2D320E-HD-OC GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported.

Processor:Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 Wolfdale 2.66GHz LGA 775 Dual-Core Processor.

Motherboard: ASUS P5KPL-VM

Memory: OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit.

Hard drive: Segate Barracuda 250 GB 7200 RPM.

and a samsung dvd burner.

What I want to know is, can a Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC 430W Power handle these?

Thank you.

this system should run nicely on the PSU, although if u want to add another G\C later then a 650w or above would be recomended

With a single 18 amp rail ?

From a review

"The main problem with this power supply is that it can’t deliver its labeled power. It is, in fact, a 350 W power supply."

I wouldn't try it.
