Hi I'm new to this forum and I have a bit of a problem here. Recently I ordered all of the parts for my first build and ran into a bit of an issue. I am not sure if my psu will be enough now that most of my parts have arrived. I did not think this through very well. I have a raidmax 700W PSU. My parts consist of a Asus matrix gtx 580, g.skill sniper ram, i7 2600k, coolermaster v8 cpu cooler, and a seagate 1tb hdd. Will this psu be enough???
It doesn't matter if you're overclocking or not. You can overclock regardless and still be at the same risk factor of the PSU crapping out on you. A single top-of-the-line GPU at an overclocked load wouldn't breach 600W of power, never mind a smaller 580.
