2nd hard drive? Do i have enough power?

I have a 600 watt coolmaster psu, and am running a 250 gig hard drive right now, and want to put in a 500 gig or 1 terabyte for putting pictures, movies, music etc... on. My other specs are:

Phenom II 3.0 ghz
4 gig DDR3 1600mhz
ATI 4850 X2
cd/rom
250 hard drive

Do you guys think I am going to need to go up to a bigger PSU if I want to put in a 2nd hard drive?

  1. You have enough power to add a 2nd hard drive. Hard drives use very minimal power and you have enough head room with your current PSU.
  2. Best answer
    Today's typical HDD's use about 10 watts or less - some MAYBE up to 15.
