Advice on DAW workstation build

Last response: in Systems

I am putting together a new workstation for music production. This will be the only function of the PC, so gaming-related specs are not relevant.

With that in mind, I am hoping to get some opinions about the following setup:

ASUS P9X79 Deluxe

Intel Core i7-3820 3.6GHz

CPU cooler:
Cooler Master Hyper 412S

Corsair HX 650W 80 Plus

ASUS GeForce 210 1GB Silent

Crucial m4 SSD 256GB

Fractal Design Define XL R2 Black Pearl

I am reusing 24GB of ram from my previous build as well as 3 non-SSD HDDs. I am not planning to overclock the CPU.

In particular, I am unsure if the PSU is sufficient? It's my understanding that it's mostly high-end graphics cards that are very power hungry?

Thanks in advance!

Is Music production really that intensive?
