  1. I'd say that should be enough power, but what is the brand of the PSU? You want to make sure you have a quality brand, otherwise you risk turning your brand new PC into a doorstop.

    The Power Supply is a Thermaltake PSU TT|W0319RU.

    Without knowing how many connections the PSU has, you'll be fine. Just make sure it has enough spots to power the 4 drives and 2 cards.
