Is the power supply adequate?

Hey all, Im in the process of buying a new PSU. My old one is 1200 watts, but i changed a few parts inside my computer that will make a difference. Heres my build

MY question....is the ax1200i PSU going to cut it?

Details:
CPU OC'd to 5.1-5.2ghz. 1.55 vcore

GPU will eventually be OC'd

RAM will probably be kept at 2133.


So....is it enough? The websites ive used to estimate my psu requirements are putting me above 1200 watts, but the builds I see using these parts or better, are often using 1200 watt PSUs. Will I need a 1500 watt psu or is this one good?

    Hi :)

    You need better power consumption websites...

    I see nothing there that any good make 1000 watt wouldn't cover...and that's being generous...an 850 would probably be fine...

    All the best Brett :)

    I was just using this http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
    I was getting numbers into the 1300s depending on how many different size fans I put in(all were in the 1300s some high some low).

    thanks for the input.
