Hi guys, I'm new to these forums and I'm ready to start ordering parts for my custom build, there's just one thing I can't figure out, it's if the PSU I have my eye on (which comes bundled with the case I want) will be enough. If anyone could steer me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

My build:

Case/PSU bundle:

motherboard:

Asrock Z77 ex4

other:

i7 3770k,
evga gtx 670,
corsair 8GB (2x 4GB),
1tb 7200rpm HDD,
128GB SSD


Cheers guys.

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 670 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

For a system using two reference clocked GeForce GTX 670 graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 700 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 45 Amps or greater and that has at least four 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most important factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) will require an additional increase to the combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock you are trying to achieve.

The Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 600W (RS-600-80GA-D3), with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 48 Amps and with two 6-pin and two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 670. It is also sufficient to power your system configuration with two GeForce GTX 670 in 2-way SLI mode if you want to do that in the future.
