I have been ordering components to build a new system, however I am not sure if my current system's PSU will be able to handle my new rig's setup. Perhaps someone can give me a hand in figuring out if I am going to have to buy a new PSU (which I hope not to do as I am trying to to keep this within budget.) Any and all help will is greatly appreciated!

Current PSU:
Silverstone Strider 600 Watt

+3.3V +5V +12V1 +12V2 +12V3 +12V4 -12V +5VSB
Max.(Amps): 25A 24A 13A 18A 16A 8A 0.5A 2.0A

New system I hope this PSU can run:
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T @3.2Ghz
ASUS Crosshair 4 Formula
16GB G.Skill Ripjaw (PC3 12800)
eVGA GTX 570 Superclocked
3 HDDs (sata)
1 - DVD-RW
5 120mm case fans (including CPU fan)

I know that if I chose to go SLi one day with another 570 card I wouldn't be able to do it with this powersupply, but is it possible, for the time being, to have my current PSU run this system stable with no overclocking?

Thanks in advance for all replies!
