Im about to build a new comp (first one Ill have built) and all I need to know right now is:

Is this power supply enough for: a 200$ or less core 2 duo, core 2 quad, or core i5
three HDs (probably these;
a 1gb ati radeon 4850
a cd/dvd r/w optical drive
4 gigs of ddr3 1333 or 1600 ram

and will all of that fit comfortably in this case:

thank you in advance

Go with the Core i5 if you can afford it.

You'll be fine with a 450W, this one from Corsair would be the best you can get

I would go with this case . Superior cooling and better overall build quality. You can combo it with the Wester Digital Black 640GB so you won't need to get those three small HDD's. And you get a massive $45 combo discount too

I'd stick with the OCZ PSU that you picked. It's good quality, modular, and provides plenty of power. The corsair listed by build is also good, but with the rebate on the OCZ, it's a better deal.

If you're going to get the DDR3 1600, try fitting the i5 into your budget. For the case, this is a good deal. But it all depends on your aesthetic preference.
