600W Enough For this Build?

Will a 600W power supply, the one mentioned below be enough for this build? All items are from newegg and have their item #'s attached. I do not plan on overclocking anything other than the processor and I will not be using SLI. Thanks in advance for your responses!

More about 600w build
  1. only one gtx 460?
    Its enough.
  2. Ok. Thanks for the quick reply! I did some research and I saw that power supply should be fine with the video card, but I was worried about the rest of the components in my system, especially when I overclock my i5 2500k to around 4.2ghz.
  3. psu is not a good brand.If you do get the rosewill then get the 750w.That should be enough for you.
  4. I dont think it would be enough for you.If you go for rosewill go for something around 850w minimum.It should be enough.
    Feedback in newegg website was very very poor.

  5. I dont suggest you go near them.Leave them and run away for the hills.Dont come back until you find corsairs or antec power supplies.
  6. How many Watts would you suggest for my build if I go with a Corsair or Antec power supply?
  7. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139021 - I was thinking of going with this one. 750 w corsair. However, I wonder if that will work later down the road if I want to add a second video card and do SLI.

    That's a great choice! and yes 750W will run 2x460
    Better deal for an equivalant unit.
    XFX 750W PRO750W

    If you pricematch from here you'll save a couple bucks.

  9. Based on Googling, a 750W PSU would be more than enough for SLI GTX 460
