Hello,

I've run multiple "PSU Calculators," but have received conflicting responses. Can any veteran tell me if this PSU is sufficient to power my system? I inquired about this recently, but I modified a few specs and the old thread is locked. Thanks.

PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition Deneb 3.5GHz Socket AM3 125W (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

Motherboard: ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

Optical Drive: Extracting from current PC, some old dvd burner from 2008

HDD: 320gb standard HD, definitely not high-RPM.

Thanks for your swift reply. Based on your comment, could I have gone for a 430W lol? Or would that have been insufficient?
