Is the CX500 good enough for:
i5-2400
GTX 560 TI
8gb ram (4gbx2)
1 SSD
DVD burner

I ask just to save a lil cash and is part of a case bundle. With the bundle it is about $48 saved.

yes, that's plenty of power in my opinion.

Maybe Ko88 can't give you a closer figure on that.

The 500W is plenty.



This system is with an i7-920 (130W) + ~39% OC.

a c 1167 ) Power supply

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Continuous Amperage Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most important factor.

The Corsair Builder Series CX500 V2 (CMPSU-500CXV2), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 34 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 560 Ti.

Although the Corsair Enthusiast Series TX do have a higher quality and longer warranty period.
