Hello,

I was wondering...would the following power supply be enough for the following setup?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition
8 GB Kingston HyperX DDR3 RAM
ASRock 970 Extreme3 Motherboard
Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 GPU
TWO 160gb Seagate 7200rpm Hard drives
a normal old dell DVD/CD RW thing

Thats about it. I'm really on a tight budget and that thing is within it, I heard good reviews but I want to be sure.

Thanks! :)

40A on the +12V rail. Yes, it's way more than enough.

Looks fine to me. Antec is a top tier PSU maker.

For a system running with a single Radeon HD 6850 graphics card a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply with a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 24 Amps or greater and with at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector is recommended.

The Antec NEO ECO 520C, with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 40 Amps and with one 6-pin and one 6+2 pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors is more than capable.

Awesome, thanks a bunch! :) 

So happy I don't have to spend extra on a different one. I might though, if I decide to get a better card or go crossfire.
