I have hdd / dvd rom / case / monitor already. Is 500W psu enough considering that cpu going to be overclocked?

Anything else I should be concerned about? Keep in mind this is a budget build.

Your video card alone is asking for a 450w psu. I would suggest more than a 50 spare watt buffer for everything else you have to power. I built my first PC last month with a very similar setup, same cpu and gpu. My video card asked for at least 500w so i got a 650w psu. Nothing wrong with a little extra leg room. You can find a 600w - 700w for around the same price. That's the route I would take, then again.... I built my first pc last month. :pt1cable:

They just recommend 450w in general. It doesn't mean only gpu would consume 450w, that would be crazy sir!
