Will my PSU handle my new CPU?

I'm going to buy a new CPU and motherboard this week and i was just wondering if my power supply is good enough for my new CPU, my PSU is a 420W one with this written on the side:

DC Output..............................................|..+3.3V..|..+5V..|..+12V1..|..+12V2..| -12V..|..+5VSB|
...........................|....Current..................|...28A....|...28A..|.....12A...|...18A.....|..0.6A .|........3A|
Power.................|....Load......................|..........160W......|.......324W(27A).....|.7.2W.|.....15W|
420W..................|..................................|.....................360W.........................|........18W........|
...........................|.............Max Load......|.....................420W.........................|........23W........|


My Sys Specs are:

Intel q8300
GIGABYTE GA-EP41-UD3L
Asus EN8600GT
Pioneer 111D
Conceptronics Card Reader
320GB Seagate harddrive

  1. The official minimum power supply requirement for a system with a 8600GT video card are:

    300 watt or greater power supply with a +12 Volt rail rated at 18 amps.

    400 watt or greater power supply with a +12 volt rail rated at 24 amps for SLI mode.

    The 8600GT is not a power hungry card. You should be okay.
