More about 750w hard disks
  1. Hard disks typically use < 10W, SSD's only use a few. They should not be your primary concern with respect to power requirements.
  2. Be empowered -> check a simple calculator:

  3. Yes thats enough for your whole system and then some if you were considering SLI with another 460 down the road.
  4. One of my systems has an OC'd Q9550, 4 GB RAM, a GTX260 - a card with similar power requirements to yours, a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P motherboard, 3 hard drives and an optical, and a Soundblaster card all powered by a Corsair 750TX.

    Running 3 instances of Prime95 to load the CPU and 3DMark06 to load the GPU, it pulls 375 watts from the wall as measured by my Kill-a-Watt meter. Figuring 80% efficiency, the system pulls 300 watts from the PSU.

    So I estimate that your PSU will be running at less than 50% load.
  5. yes 750w is way enough. i mean even a 600w branded psu can run your system.
    i have a much higher system than you have i7-950 w/c is a power hungrier than i5-760 but im only running a 600w fsp everest and has no problems.
    your corsair 750w is way enough.
