My System Specs

I cannot recommend PC P&C at all since I have 3 friends that have had major quality control issues with theirs. I firmly believe that OCZ's purchase has done them no good and it is all downhill from here. I would easily and quickly pick the Antec over those.

Will 500W be enough for the system?

with your current Video Card and HD setup yes but it would hurt to bump up to at least a 600W

It would hurt about $40 extra..

We shall see. More than likely i will have enough, but i like to have my parts list finalized prepurchase just so i know what i'm walking into the store for.

If i don't have enough for the 600W the 500W will suit me (not planning on overclocking or anything)

I am not thinking of overclocking I am thinking of future video cards you may want....but I guess when you get the money for a new card you would have money for a new PSU.

I agree any latest series Video Card may put a big hit on a 500w psu.

One thing i really like to do is splurge on PSU's. If you even think you might upgrade in the future I would splurge and get atleast a 700W Psu thats high quality. Bottom line is your always gonna need a PSU, if you get a good one in the beginning atleast you wont have to keep replacing it

True.

600W P C sounds good then.

....excellent

I agree with the Overkill on PSU's in a big way which is why I run the HX1000 which is about 400 watts overkill but I like the upgrade ability and how this PSU will run cool and quite when my PC is on full load.
