Gigabyte Am3 880GM-USB3
Hec Gamma 500 Watt PSU
Asus DvdBruner Dvd+r/dvd-r/dvd+rw/dvd-rw

i want to know if this psu can handle my specs ???????????????????????
i calculated it from all manufactures websites and i think it will be good
Cpu = 125watt
Gpu = 151watt
Mobo = 18 watt

I would save money by not using that Hexcore chip,
drop it to a 955be and maybe up the graphics,
according to a couple of reviews I found, Hec psu's aren't all that bad, I wouldn't get one myself but it should handle your purposes alright,
especially as your not intending on pushing any limits :p
