  1. it should be enough and its a decent brand, at least you didn't post an apevia PSU
  2. lol, thanks :)
  3. +1 to mindless...That PSU is just enough but if you plan to change your graphics card to a more powerful one(Your PSU can handle say max 4850/ GTS250 but would be definitely pushing it...), then change your PSU...
  4. Get this PSU...
    Corsair 400W - Far better than that PSU and you get USD $20 Mail-In-Rebate...

    Slight price difference for 50W more.
    I think you should go with this.
  6. Thanks.... but sadly i orderd everything last night (including that 500W PSU that came with the case I chose)
