Is my PSU enough?

Hello,
I've ordered a ton of parts for my rendering suite. Is my PSU gonna be enough to handle it all at full load. If not what is my cheapest solution?

32gb ddr3-1333 gskill ram
ASUS M5A97 EVO mobo
asus directcool 560ti
120gb ssd

More about enough
  1. you had limit Power PSU for overclock it to 5ghz or maybe enough for it, if disabled 6cores, cheapest solution is little overclock

    just put in your specs and it will tell you how much wattage you need, I like to add 100W to it just to be safe.
  3. more than enough
  4. it will be enough without overclocking
  5. You could run that system at stock speeds with a 500 watt corsair psu, so you have about 100 watts to spare. You should be fine.

    its more than enough, they overclocked it to 4.818, and didnt hit 600 yet. close but look at the test setup:

    Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 3GB graphics card (GeForce driver 280.26 WHQL)
    120GB Patriot Wildfire SSD
    Enermax Revolution 85+ 1.05kW power supply
    Asus Crosshair V Formula motherboard motherboard
    Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z motherboard
    Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard
    4/6GB (3 x 2GB) Corsair 1,600MHz DDR3 memory (CL9)
    Thermaltake Frio CPU cooler for AMD processors; Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro cooler for Intel LGA1155 processors and the Be Quiet! Dark Rock Advanced for Intel LGA1366 processors.


    that gpu right there is a power hungry dual gpu. since you are only using a 560ti, its WAY more than enough.
