Hi, the system I built has the following:
Intel i5 2500K
Corsair H60 CPU Cooler
GSkill 8GB RAM 1600Mhz (2x4GB)
ASRock Pro4 Z77 Motherboard
AMD Radeon HD 6850
OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD
Western Digital 500GB HDD
Corsair CX500 PSU
Creative Soundblaster Card (Don't know what model it is specifically)
I was thinking of adding an additional 120GB SSD but I'm not sure if my PSU can supply it or not. I'd rather not buy another PSU that is 750W but I will if I have to.
Will 500w be enough to power 2 SSDs, 1 HDD, and the rest of my rig?
Hi - the other replies are correct, quality 500w PSU more than enough. SSD's draw very little power, very
often less than 4w. As a general rule of thumb unless you are going to run with multiple GPU's, 500w
is plenty w/headroom.
