600w Corsair PSU

Hi guys, getting a new PSU tomorrow as my existing one is not compatible with my new GPU.

I have run my specs through a few online PSU calculators, and they seem to estimate my usage at between 480w & 550w.

2 x 2GB DDR2 RAM
Radeon HD 6870
Intel Q9550 Core 2 Quad Processor
DVD RW
Regular desktop motherboard 775
500 GB 7200 HDD

I was looking at getting this graphics card:

and I was just wondering if it seems like enough wattage to you guys, a fair price, and a good brand.

Many thanks,

Mike

    Hi amore - Yes that Corsair is enough for your system as listed.
    40+ amps on the +12v rail is good.
