Hi guys.

For crimbo I received an XFX Pro 550W power supply and a MSI GTX560 ti Hawk 1gb, however I feel that the power supply will be enough in the long run if I'm going to add a Corsair H80i to my build although my dad seems convinced otherwise

At the moment I have:
ASUS M4A97TD/USB3 motherboard
AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE @3.2ghz
12Gb of DDR3 RAM
MSI GTX560 ti Hawk 1Gb
2x 7,200rpm 500gb HDD
2x DVD RW (one is really old [uses a molex])
XFX Pro 550w PSU

What I wish to add:
OC the CPU to 4ghz
Corsair H80i water cooling
Phantom 410 midi case (maybe, and I thinks that's what it's called)

My question is, will my PSU be up to the job if I add/change these components or do I return it and go for the Corsair 600w one

Much appreciated to anyone who replies.

Hi - stay with the Seasonic built XFX 550, it is more than enough for your system,
and is a better quality unit than the cx600 which is Corsair's
budget/opening price point series, and the cx600 has only 2
more amps on the +12v rail.

Good idea, no sense in upgrading from 44a to 46a on +12v rail.

Good luck with your rig.
