Hi all,

Shortly I am going to build me a new gaming rig (the spec is bellow) I would like to know if the power supply is enough, I am not going to overclock, but I might add another graphics card in the future (I haven't decided) any help would be greatly appreciated, also before anyone comments I know this board can support 2000Mhz RAM I just can't afford 12GB of them, also I need that amount of RAM for VMWare for my University MCITP course (for running around 6 or more virtual machines).

Corsair HX850W Modular
Intel i7-950 3.06Ghz 1366
Gigabyte G1-Killer G1.Sniper X58 (onboard Creative X-Fi chip for audio)
Corsair Vengance 12GB 1600mhz
Cooler Master HAF-X Nvidia Ed
Gainward Phantom GTX 580 3GB
Sony AD-7261S-0B SATA
WD Caviar Blue 500GB SATA III
Hitachi Deskstar 3TB SATA III
Akasa SATA III Cable Blue 50cm x3

Thanks Xeo...

The HX850 has plenty of power even if you want to add another GTX 580.

Thanks for the response, I've tried a number of wattage calculators I just wanted confirmation from someone who has had experience in building systems...
