Ok I checked power supply calcs and all that good stuff but it never hurts to have a second opinion.
I was looking at graphics cards today and think im going to buy and they have a combo deal with
My build consists of
i5 750
4gb ram
Im pulling out the 400gb HDD and CD/DVD drive from my old HP comp (saves me $)

Im just asking if 600W will be enough and will there be room for me to upgrade stuff later like ram, HDD's, and OCing.

600w will let you run two ATI 5770 in crossfire

the card is very efficient and a solid 400w PSU will run it. total system power below with the following specs
