I'm just about to order all the parts, but just before i do, i'd just like to confirm that a corsair 500w PSU would be enough to run;
-3 Sata Hard drives
-Athlon II X3 445 3.1 GHz Overclocked to as far as i can get it with this an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2, so say 3.7GHz.
-GTX 460 also overclocked as far as i can, so say around 850 core.
-A couple of fans.
So if you could just confirm that it all wouldn't explode when i turn it on i would be very gratefull,
The VX series is a Tier above the CX series in terms of quality and poweR output.. Also, the price difference is not that significant.. So unless you are on a strinGent budget scenario, it is recommended to opt for the VX 550.. You can also look at the Seasonic S12II 520 as a viable alternative..
