1: Will this rig be able to work properly with a 600W powersupply?

Arctic Cooling Freezer Xtreme Rev.2 (CPAR-027)
MSI P67A-GD65, 1155
Procesor Intel Core i7 2600K 3,4 GHz, 1155
PowerColor Radeon HD6950, 2 GB, PCI-E
2x Kingston DDR3 4 GB 1333 MHz (KVR1333D3N9/4G)
1x WD6001 (5400rpm)
1x WD5001(7200rpm)
1x WD1600(7200rpm)
HAF932 case.

If yes, will I be able to Oc GPU,CPU and ram without worrying?
Trying to save money for a new screen, ran E8400 and ATI4850 with the 600W powersupply.

2: Will the rig make the most out of the CPU/GPU with win7 64bit OS installed on 7400rpm 32cache HDD? I cant afford a 10k RPM HDD or a SSD, saving for a new screen.

Thanks! (PS will slowly upgrade HDDs and sooner or later the powersupply)

This is a case of giving you a fish or teaching you to fish.

...of course it's really easy to figure out. You already have all your components listed, but you still want to consider how many fans and lights you have in your case as well.

Try the 'Lite' Version on this site:

It's a great PSU calculator!

Hope that helps!

I would say go for something like 650w especially if you want to overclock all components.

Im not exactly an expert at this, if lets say i'd oc my i7-2600k to 4.2/4.8ghz, about how much more will it eat(roughly)? I dont know the voltages i'll be using (on auto)
PS: It would be nice if you guys would answer my second question in the first post, thanks! (I cant edit my last post for some reason? :S)

I will replace the PSU I mentioned in the original post with my dads Antec Earthwatts 750W, Alot better than LC650W I suppose.
