What PSU does Thermaltake retail with their budget cases

Hey guys, I'm New here
Do you know what PSU Theremaltake retails with their Cases. I'm after a Commander MS-I. In the description it says it comes with a 500 watt PSU. I'm Making a Budget PC and this is the best i can afford. Will it be able to power my system:
CPU - Intel Core i3 2120
MOBO - Asus P8H61 LE V3
RAM - Gskill 4GB 1333MHz
HDD - Segate Barracuda 7200RPM
ODD - LG Black DVD RW
GPU - Gigabyte GTX560

All This stuff is from Australia.

More about what thermaltake retail budget cases
  1. Not really - the power supplies that come with cases are generally junk power supplies. You're better off buying the items separately.

    I'd suggest this:

    Case: Cooler Master HAF 912
    PSU: Corsair TX 650 V2
  2. How Much would all of this cost?? I'm Under A BUDGET. The Max i can spend is 100 bucks on case and psu.
  3. thermaltake power supplies are trash, unless it's the high end 850w or 100w ones. Go for a Corsair, OCZ, cooler master, or seasonic, not anything else. OCZ I believe offers the cheapest for high quality power supplies and seasonic is the most expensive.

    Then try this:

    Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119227
    PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028

    That will come out to $106.98 after the rebate.

  6. Based on the specs given on the Commander MS-I product page the PSU it comes with is a Litepower 500W W0316:
    http://au.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00001774

    It states that the efficiency is 'more than 65%', these days anything less than 80% is unacceptable.
    It states that the operating temperature is 10-25C.
    The 500W number in it's model name is derived from a peak output of 500W, which is fairly misleading as it's continuous rating is 400W.
    It has a combined +12V rail amperage of 23A (or 276W) which is terrible for a 400W PSU let alone a 500W unit.
    Finally GTX 560s require two 6pin PCIe connectors and the Litepower 500W W0316 only has one.

    I think you need to either spend more than $100 on just the case and PSU, or you need to buy a good PSU and just buy a cheap case.

    I would suggest the Antec VP550P:

    The CX600 provides only 520W of continuous 12v rail power.

    Sure? Usually Corsair psu's are built to run at the watts given. Over years, it won't drop like 100 watts.

    You're trying to correct someone with the wrong information?
    The CX600 V2 has a 40A +12V rail, which equates to 480W.
