Hey there,

After asking on numerous forums I've found that I may have a problem with the power supply I've chosen for a proposed build
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz Kit
Case: CoolerMaster Storm Enforcer
PSU: Silverstone Strider Plus 600W ST60F-P
Graphics: Gigabyte Radeon HD6870 Overclocked Edition
HDD: Already Own but it's a SATA3 W.D. Blue 500GB

People are saying that the 42 amps that the PSU gives off won't be enough or will be cutting it too close.. Is this true? and if so then what should I aim for and can anyone recommend a modular PSU that will provide me with what I need?

Thanks in advance

okay thank you, what amps should I be looking for then? 48+ or what? I'm sorry just I don't know how much difference 1 amp makes and all that.

I think i'll go with the GX 750 as it also has enough power to run Crossfire if I decide in future
