I will need to know if those specs are good enough to power the following components (both in terms of wattage power but ALSO in connectors):
- Motherboard
- CPU
- 6 HDD Mechanical Drives
- 1 SSD
- Optical Drive
- 1 Graphic Video Card
- TV Tuner Card
- eSata Card
Peripherals would be 2 HD Monitors and a 4 Bay External enclosure with esata connection

Thank you

- CPU Intel i5 3570
- currently nVidia GeForce 240

I have a good idea of which are the quality PSUs existing in the marketplace , what I am now looking for is 90% > efficiency and making sure there are enough connectors to feed all my components with no issues with the amount of available total wattage required by them

Thank you kindly.

If you have 6 HDD and 1 SSD and all are SATA you won't have enough power cables you need 7 for that and the only way u get 7 I think if you get a modular powersupply. For all the other compononets the powersupply will be ok but if it's not drastically cheaper than the good brands I don't see the point of buying from this company.

If the ODD is SATA then the OP will require 8 SATA power connectors.
