I'm planning on building a new rig soon, I'm just worried about the power supply.

fx-6100 six core @ 95W - $129.99

ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS- $59.99

4GB DDR3 Ram ( not sure which speed i'll choose)

GTX 550 TI - $119.99

Blue ray burner - $75-$100

Wireless adapter

7200rpm or 5400RPM drive ( does not matter)

Please don't post links directing me to PSU calculators. I'm just wondering could 450W PSU be enough for everything above?

All input appreciated.

If you're planning on SLI and overclocking in the future, then you might want to consider getting a 600-650 Watt, if not then 450 is enough.

that video requires a minimum 400 watt power supply, so based on what you listed a good 450 watt from corsair or seasonic will work fine, Here are some options: CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W $59.99 CORSAIR Gaming Series GS500 500W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified High Performance Gaming Power Supply $79.99

good luck
