  1. Corsair 450W VX has plenty of power for all your system parts.
  2. Personally i would go for a 550w - give your self some more head room as it will run cooler too.
  3. EVGA's GTX260 core 216 says it needs a minimum 500w PSU. Corsair makes a good PSU, but still. You'll have absolutely no headroom for expansion or overclocking. Research the total power consumption of your components. It might be a headache but its worth it. On the other hand, I'm only using a 500w PSU and I've never had a problem in the 8 months since I got it and its on almost 24/7. So make sure its got more than a single 12v rail, and doesn't fluctuate voltages, amps, etc too much under load. CPUID's hardware monitor should allow you to guage that.

    I totally agree, I would go with the Corsair 550w.
  5. I have the VX450 and here's what I'm running:

    2x 7200rpm HDD's
    3x case fans, 1x CPU fan
    1x Geforce 9800 GTX+ (needs 2x 6-pin power leads)
    1x Intel Q9650
    4x 2GB DDR2-800 RAM @ 2.0V
    2x DVD-R/W's
    1x Floppy Drive
    1x Memory card reader
    1x PCI USB/Firewire addon card

    I've had no problems at all for a year, even when stress testing.

    This thing has 33A... 396W of the 450W on the single 12V rail. It can easily handle your proposed system. If your video card requires 2x power leads, you will have to use an adapter (that's what I use) because the Corsair 450W only has one 6-pin.
