Hi I am building my first computer and wanted to know what you thought about my power supply.
Here it is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I was wondering if this is enough to power the following with ease.
Intel i5-3450
Gigabyte Radeon 787
G.Skill 8GB 1600 RAM
60GB SSD
1TB HDD

If it is not please tell me one that is and if this PSU isn't reliable please tell me what one is. The last thing that I am asking is if the PSU has enough connectors to power the parts and one 200mm fan and three 120mm fans.

All help is appreaciated:)

With your specs, you don't need 600w :)

This will do more than enough! Very reliable brand and it's on a 15% discount AND has a $20 rebate at the moment!

With both of those applied, the PSU will drop in price to below $50..that's a steal! :)

Just be aware that some of the wires are REALLY SHORT for that PSU (The OCZ). My friend got one and he was barely able to make it work in his case...

I like to have a little extra power just in case of power spikes and what not. You'll also be able to add quite a few upgrades in the future if you so wish (LEDs/extra hard drives or SSDs).

Don't forget the $20 rebate ;)  significantly reduces the price of the unit.
