More about need decide
  1. For gaming? What is the resolution of your monitor?
  2. psu: Raidmax 630w i wondering about this PSU if used for VIDEO CARD EVGA GTX 460... [:lectrocrew:5]
  3. Unless you're video-editing, you don't need 16GB of RAM. If it's for gaming, you could comfortably settle for 2x2GB RAM...something like Corsair Vengeance, Corsais XMS3 or G.Skill Ripjaws.
  4. And get DDR3 1333 or 1600. I would move down to 4GBs (or 8GBs if you must), and spend the money saved on a real PSU. Avoid Athena power, Diablotek, Raidmax, etc and get a real PSU. Antec, Corsair, Enermax, Seasonic, or XFX all sell good PSUs. Last, make sure you get a real GTX460 and not the SE model.

    shouldnt the psu be at least 600w?

    Why? the full load on your entire pc incl. the 460 is under 300W that's it on an oc'd i7 965.

    Any of the units i listed should be ok.
    The CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W that's on special today is a wicked price = no brainer
    The XFX 450 would also be more then enough = excellent units
    I just bought another OZC ModX 600W yesterday to upgrade one of my builds.
    OZC ModX are really great cuz the price is right for decent units that have less cables.
    I bought my first OZC ModX over 14 months ago and no complaints.
    For $60 and a $25 dollar rebate it's hard to fault for a reliable,well reviewed unt.
    All the ModX's really deliver price and performance wise.
