Hello,
Can a 620W Power Supply (GIGABYTE PSU Suberb E620, 620W, 80 , SLI, Active PFC) run a CPU with a Intel i5 3550 Processor, GIGABYTE MB GA-Z77X-D3H 1.0 Motheboard, Seagate 500GB Sata3 16MB 7200rpm/m HDD, Kingston 8GB DDR3 1600mhz Memory, ASUS VGA GTX 650 Ti Graphic Card, Thermaltake V3 Black Edition with one 120mm fan? (Other components: Wireless USB mini card, ACER 22" FULL HD monitor, keybord, joysticks etc)

Is 620W enough? Thanks for your help.

Hi - Yes, 620w is more than enough. However, the PSU you mention might not be reliable.
I read somewhere that this PSU line is far from superb.
If you already own it, then go ahead. If not, then consider another brand, i.e. Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, XFX.

I don't own it. I want to buy a PC with the configuration I mentioned. I was just wondering if 620W is enough. What's the mimimum W for this configuration, btw? And which PSU would you recommend? (ofc, it shouldn't be too expensive)

Thanks.

Hi again - A quality 400w PSU would suffice, emphasis on quality. 500w would give you breathing room and
the ability to upgrade your GPU in the future. As far as what I'd recommend, I need to know your budget.
Good news (if you are in the US) is there some really good deals being offered, limited time of course.

Nope. I'm from Europe. I was considering to buy a In Win GreenMe 650W PSU. It's about 50€, and it seems to be a really good PSU. Thanks again.
