Enclosure: ANTEC P190-1200, New, but 3 to 5 years old. The enclosure has, pre-installed a 650 Watt power supply for the motherboard and, I think, for the Video Card, plus, a 550 Watt power supply for everything else. [The case comes with about 5 or 6 fans pre-installed.]

Will install,

Motherboard, ASUS Sabertooth, X79
CPU, Intel i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E
Memory, Corsair Dominator 32GB (4x8GB) 240-pin DDR# SDRAM DDR3 1600
Video Card, ASUS ENGTX570
3 each, Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB
Western Digital Caviar Black WD2002FAEX 2TB
PLEXTOR Internal Super Multi, PX-L890SA
Corsair H70 Cooler

Do I have enough power with the 2 power supplies that come with the case? How should I divide the electrical hook-up of the components between the two power supplies?

Thanks for your help.

Most likely not. The case most likely doesn't support 2 PSUs and the quality of a no-name brand is questionable.

The ANTEC P190-1200 Enclosure comes with the 2 power supplies already installed. I thought that ANTEC was a good brand. Since the 2 power supplies are installed by ANTEC, certainly the enclosure supports them!

Antec is no longer a good brand because Seasonic stopped manufacturing their PSUs.

The case, with the power supplies installed was purchased 3 to 5 years ago. I don't know about Seasonic and when they stopped making the power supplies; but the case should be compatible with the 2 power supplies that came installed in the case. The real question is, will 1 each, 650 watt and 1 each, 550 watt power supply is enough to handle the components that I will be installing in the case?
