Phenom II 720
Gigabyte 790FX Mobo
4GB 1600 DDR3 Ram

A high quality 700 to 750 watt power supply is sufficient to run your system.

I am inclined to say yes. Unfortunately Corsair does not have a 700 or 750 watt psu that is modular. If you go to www.jonnyguru.com you might be able to find a different high quality psu that is modular.
