Is this 630-watt PSU enough?

I've built some computers in the past but nothing so high end, and now that its shipping to my house I'm second guessing myself.

These are the specs:

AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Processor

ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX Mother Board

(2 of these) SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16

Kingston 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Seagate Barracuda Green ST1000DL002 1TB 5900 RPM

OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 2.5" 128GB SATA III SSD

CORSAIR H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

More about watt enough
  1. You forgot to post what power supply ;)

    This might help as to power requirements.

    I generally recommend Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ and Antec.
  2. Oh whoops!!!

    RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-630SS 630W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V
  3. definately enough wattage, not so confident on the quality of the psu though
  4. ^ Have to agree. It's made by Andyson and that's not a good thing generally. No real reviews for it but Raidmax is a brand to avoid.

    I would replace it with something not as cheaply made.
  5. Thanks so much guys, that calculator was fun to play with, not sure I entered it all in right though.

    @neon Yea I was browsing this forum on power supplies looking for some help without posting, and I didn't see a soul recommend this brand..... I'll look into getting an Antec, they seem to be highly praised.
  6. You don't really need a calculator. The page I linked you to does it for you. 2 x 6870s need a 600w power supply. If they are heavily overclocked ( and your CPU too ) make it 700 watts. Stick with the brands I listed for a quality unit.

    Where are you buying from? I will be glad to see if anything good is on sale.
