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!

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.

psu is not a good brand.If you do get the rosewill then get the 750w.That should be enough for you.

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.

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... - 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.

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

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