Hello,
I am going to buy a new motherboard,CPU and a water cooler so I was not sure if my PSU will be enough for it...

System specs;

Sabertooth Z77
i5 3570k(Ivy Bridge)
Corsair H100i
GTX460 1GB
1 TB HDD
Seasonic 520W (S12II-520Bronze)

...I will be overclocking the CPU to 4.5GHz or less...

So will this PSU be able to run this configuration?

Any answer will be appreciated!

PSU should be enough I think, but don't waste your money on the sabertooth mobo. Get an ASRock Z77 Extreme4 instead.

I wanted to get an ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 or 6 but later I found the Sabertooth that looks much better(in my opinion),better quality components and a huge 5 year warranty...I mean the Extreme 4 is not a bad board but if money is not a problem and if can get better why not...you know..

Your GPU is very weak compared to the setup, you might wanna change that if you can. I would advice you to choose the XFX Pro Series Core Edition 650 watt instead, XFX's PSUs are made my Seasonic, so you'll still get great quality and you'll get more for your Money I believe. It would come handy in the future, if you would like to upgrade.

Hi - Yes that psu will run your rig. I agree with lostgamer tho, your gpu
isn't up to par with the rest of your system.

Ok,so I am going to buy the sabertooth z77,3570k and the H100i in a month or more and hopefully at the end of this summer will be buying a XFX 850 core edition because I can get it for 10$ more than the 750W version...and I will buy an GTX 660 2 gb so I will be able to run it on 2-WAY SLI in the future,If I want to...
