Solved

Will the PSU I've chosen suffice for my build?

Hi. I am building my first PC with the following components:

Phenom II x6 1055T CPU

Seagate 7200.12 500GB HDD

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 RAM

Gigabyte 770TA-UD3 motherboard

PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 5850 1GB GDDR5 GPU

Using this PSU calculator - http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp - I was recommended to get a <400W PSU.

But I was wondering, would this Corsair PSU with 30A on the 12V rail suffice: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139008

If not, can you recommend a PSU that is sub $100 that would?

Thank you in advance! :)
