Question about PSU

Last response: in Systems

my build is

I5 - 3.4 (no oc)
Coolermaster V8
Asus Maximus IV gene-z
Corsair 16gb 2133mhz ddr3 ram
Asus GTX560ti
4 120mm fans and a PCI slot VGA cooler fan.
Thermaltake 600w PSU

my question is how far a 600w psu can go? or is this psu enough for my build? seem to work normal but if it can damage my setup, I can go buy something more powerful.

I'm sorry if this is not the right place to open this topic.

I'm open to any suggestions and thank you.

Here's a couple I recommend: antec 750w gamers series for $55 after rebate with promo code; register with newegg to use the promo code; the corsair TX650 series for $50 after rebate and promo code is also good.
You can also get a much cheaper coolermaster 450w for $30 after rebate, but the other brands are more reliable.

thank you for the reply. ok I'll consider the option of 750w psu. but if you are suggesting 450w psu then 600w should be more than enough?

Yes. Ocz and xfx are also good. I use an ocz 400w unit, and it's very quiet.
