PSU Sufficient Enough?

I need to know if my current PSU can handle or will even work with my new setup I've got here.

Currently I have a this PSU Ultra X-Finity 600-watt

And this is my new system specs:

I plan on getting a new PSU soon just maybe a few weeks or so. And graphics card later.

- One 74gb WD Raptor
- One 250gb WD Caviar Black
- ASUS P6X58D Premium
- Intel Core i7-930
- CORSAIR H50 Hydro Series
- CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB)
- ASUS CD/DVD Burner
- Evga 7950GT 512

More about sufficient enough
  1. It's fine for your current system and will handle something like an HD 5870 or GTX 470 fine although if you're going for any CrossFireX/SLI setups later on with your newer graphics card you will want a newer PSU, and as Davcon said it's not very efficient, 70% at full load, it's 80% or so with newer PSUs that have an 80+ rating.
  2. Ok thanks for the answers guys, One more question. My old AMD board used the 4-pin connection.

    And this new motherboard seems to use the 8-pin EPS is this the one I should use on this board or should I still be using the 4-pin.
  3. Yeah it has an 8-pin but I didn't know if I needed to use that one and I didn't see anything in the manual maybe gotta look harder.

    But there is a plastic guard covering four of the 8-pin on the motherboard.
  4. You'll want to remove the plastic cover and use the eight pin connector.
