Power suply enough?

hi! My question is that i have a power suply from Thermaltake 550 W, is it enough for the next PC: E8500 + GTX 260(or HD 4870) + 2 SATA HDD + 1 DVD burner + 1x120 mm fan + 2x90 mm fan.
Thank you for the help.

  1. Yes, that's sound just perfect for your needs. You can use this: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

    ...just to be sure. Remember to leave a 20% allowance!
  2. It should be just enough, although I'm never been a fan of Thermaltake PSUs.
  3. ^ +1 for both ...It is suffice...
    And I see you are planning for a new PC...Do check out the AMD X4 940 as it is a quad core and would cost nearly the same as the E8500 and would perform as good as the E8500 in games and better in other apps...Just my 2 cents...

    I agree with AKM. They are, umm, excessively mediocre.
