[NEED URGENT HELP!] Is it enough power?

Okay so I'm building a decent rig for christmas on a budget. I already have some parts that i can use and was woundering.
Can the thermaltake tr2 (non modular) 600w handle powering:

g.skill Ripjaw x series 8gb set

AMD Phenom II x4 965 black edition 3.4 ghz (im not over clocking it)

MSI 97a-G46 AM3+ AMD 970 sata 6gb/s

Nvidia Geforce 210 1gb ddr2 pcie 2.0

with

250gb 7200 rpm hard drive

500 gb 5400 rpm hard drive

Antec ice 100 case

and a dvd burner/player

Please let me know!

  1. there is no way that rig will come close to 600w maybe downgarde to a 500w
    my 955 be pulls around 115 watts at load and your gt 210 will run off the pcie lane so you wont need more than that for a while
  2. well like i want to upgrade to a 550 ti or a 560 ti later on thats why i ask and this will be my first actual build. thanks for the answer and i already have the 600 w psu thats why the rig is only gonna cost me 227.87
  3. Honestly, my personal opinion would be to maybe look into this one. Its enough for one high end gpu as well as overclocking of the system. I wouldn't buy that power supply if you care about quality you'll give corsair/seasonic a look :)

  4. get a better graphics card if you can otherwise that's fine for an upgrade later at least you know what to upgrade.

    I ALREADY have the thermaltake it isn't bad tbh.
    Also will it handle that system minus the 210 and with a 550 ti?

    and im not over clocking until i have a 1300 watt psu and water coolingl.

    I already have the 210 it isn't bad i can get pretty stable frame rates on a lot of games. but im saving for a 550 ti
  7. Well the 550 ti doesn't use much power to begin with. It only requires a 400 watt as a minimum.

    where with the 560ti it requires 500 watts

    Honestly though when it comes down to it I would either wait till the 600 series goes on the cheap or maybe even look for the AMD cards. The 600 and 7000 series are a bit lighter on power then the 500 series.
  8. I would upgrade to a 750w if you are planing on upgradeing sometime

    1300 watt that might be borderline overkill if your running 6990's in crossfire.
