Hi guys, I was just wondering...

I'm looking @ upgrading for christmas...
The upgrade will consist of the following items

Intel Core 2 Duo Wolfdale E8400 3.0ghz
eVGA GeForce GTX 260 896mb
4GB (2x2GB) OCZ Platinum Ed. DDR2 800
Not sure on the mobo yet still looking
80GB Samsung Hard Drive
Toshiba Super-Multi DVD+-R/RW/RAM
Sony 52x/32x/52x CD-RW
Antec TruePower 2.0 550w

Basically I want to know would I be able to run the setup with the 550w Antec TruePower 2.0 PSU, but most importantly would that PSU run all of the above listed components, and the GTX 260...??

Welcome to the forums!

For single video card geForce GTX 260 the use of 500 W power unit is enough ( at least 35 a along the +12v line) .
Yes, that will work.
