Long story short my Seasonic x660 bit the dust and died last night so im currently getting it rma'd.
I need a temporary replacement for the time being and the OCZ 500W ModXstream Pro is currently $35 (after mir) at my local re-seller.

My System Specs:

i3 2100
Gigabyte HD 6850
4GB DDR3
60 GB SSD
320 GB
Dvd-RW


On paper it should be ok, but i noticed the 500w modstream (see chart below) has a combined 12v of only 432w. The Min wattage on the Gigabyte HD6850 is 500w.

Will it be ok?

**EDIT I ended up getting the 600w for $10 more just to be on the safe side.

I was running a 6950 on that PSU and the rest of my components were more power hungry than yours. Take a look at this review at Guru3d: http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-6850-6870-revie...
278W power draw from the entire system with an aggressively OCd CPU....your sytem will run fine.

you are fine, you won't even break 300w gaming and the modstream series received good reviews for budget units.
