I am building a new system with these components

Athlon II X4 620
780G Motherboard
2 RAM modules
2 HDDs
1 optical drive
ATI Radeon 5750

I may be overclocking this system, but only slightly.

Is Corsair CX400 enough for this system? Or should i get Corsair VX450? Or any other recommendations?

Whoops, I misread that as a 5850, you should be ok with either. Also your system strikes me as a little unbalanced, but that's up to you.

the 5750 will take up an approximately 100 watt if i remember correctly. If that's the case, 450 watt should be fine. the only problem i see with that is you're not leaving a lot of room for upgrades in the future.

Unbalanced? How?

The info we really need is monitor resolution to judge balance. And what is the computer being used for? If its just gaming, the 550be might be a better choice. This is a recent article exploring the $100 CPU options.,243...

The GPU and CPU match each other well enough and the mobo works to just plug all the stuff into. It would match better when the CPU is OC'd, and if its just a moderate OC, the 780g should be able to do that. If you were going for a high OC, then the mobo should be something with a 710 or 750SB.
