Hi everyone,

I am compiling a parts list for my friend who wants a pc built for him, and i was wondering if the PSU I have chosen would be sufficient for the parts included. (Added peripherals because I cant be bothered deleting them :p )

SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W

Note - he may choose a 7870 instead of a 7850, so please take into consideration.

If you could recommend another PSU please use (Yes, New Zealand prices are insane -_-)

Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
LG IPS234V-PN 23" AH-IPS Panel LED Monitor
Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200
Sapphire HD7850 GHZ OC EDITION 2G

Might be good to put the PSU front and center when asking specifically about it.

Yeah, the Seasonic 520W will be fine, its got the connectors and power to run basically any single card you could want.

Thanks for the quick reply :D  and i forgot the SSD but i think it has minimal power draw.
