Will This PSU Be Able To Handle This Hardware?

I've done an extensive amount of searching and I haven't been able to find any definitive answers on whether or not my power supply would be able to handle the kind of system I'll eventually be getting.

Here is a link to my PSU's specs: http://www.rosewill.com/products/374/ProductDetail_Specifications.htm

Currently my computer has an AMD Athlon X2 5000+ CPU (not overclocked) with a XFX 4850 1GB. Within the next month I plan to get a Phenom II X4 945 CPU.

So, my question is, will that PSU be able to handle the combination of that card and that CPU?

  1. we need the number of HDDs, peripherals, fans,

    If 1 HDD, and 1 CDrom, yeah it should be fine.
  2. Ah, sorry. Here's a list of my current hardware:

    2 SATA HDDs
    1 IDE HDD
    1 IDE DVD+R/DVD+RW/CD-R/CD-RW drive

    As far as peripherals go, all I have is a USB mouse and PS/2 keyboard.

    Rosewill RP500-2 500W PSU will be fine with your new parts.
    eXtreme Power Supply Calculator Lite recommended a 400W PSU for a build similiar to yours.

  6. Sorry I haven't been here to respond, I've been busy. Anyway, thanks for the information guys. I had been worried that I wouldn't be able to upgrade (no funds for a PSU on top of the CPU) so thanks for making me see there's nothing to worry about.
