Hello, I am currently building (ordering parts is more like it) for a system, an I am stuck of what PSU I should get. People recommended me some but I would like to know why they did and how they made the calculations so I can know how to do it by myself

well, here are the specs.

First I have my case. IN WIN MANA 136 (2 120 mm fans, 1 is LED other is not)

Second, I have my Motherboard. ASRock Z77 Pro4-m LGA 1155
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813157306

Third, CPU i-7 2600 SB 3.4 - 3.8 LGA 1155
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6819115071

4th graphics card. SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870 (OC to 1050 mhz)

5th, RAM, G. SKILL Ripjaws X series 8Gb (4Gb * 2)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

6th, Western Digital 500gb 7200 rpm

7th, LG Blu - ray writer and reader

8th, Rosewill wireless adapter b/g/n, 300mbps

9th COOLER MASTER Hyper 212

and powering it all is a CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 (recomended by other forum users)

So will that PSU power it all? and how do you come to that conclusion?, Thanks for your help once again!

Yes Actually a 400W PSU can power your system but you won't have a chance for OCing, Overclocking draws more wattage in your system. Also when the system in Load it draws much more power than that "392W" So you're fine with that 650W PSU.

I'm not really into OCing, I feel as if I will break something and if I ever do it correctly I will have to do it to every component in my computer.
Thanks for all the help! You guys are wonderful!
