I am planning to build a new system specifically a mini ITX one. I was thinking of getting the Silverstone 450w, and I am planning on running a i5 3570k with a EVGA SSC 650ti. I will probably OC the i5 a bit. I wanted to know if that might be enough power for it all?
Link to the power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The full specs:
i5 3570k
EVGA SSC 650ti
ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe mobo
2x 4gb RAM 1600mhz
corsair h60 cpu cooler
intel 520 120gb ssd
2TB 7200rpm hdd
dvd burner

The 650Ti is a mediocre GPU, in my opinion. The 7850 is $10-$20 more and beats it by a good margin and uses very little power.

Thanks for therr imput, one of the reason I chose the 650ti was because of its size, the case I'm putting this in is tiny, a mini itx tower. But I could remove a section out to fit a bigger card so I will look into that card.

Rosewill Capstone 450W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Superflower made - 80Plus GOLD - Excellent quality - 37 amps 12V power. $70 FIVE YEAR warranty
This is simply top of the line at a modest price


That Rosewell 450w looks good, I'll check it out. The reason I like the Silverstone one was that it is fully modular, but I don't mind either way I'd rather go with quality if it's better.

I probably would feel safer with a higher power supply and I was always a fan of Seasonic.
