Would a 620w psu be enough?
I am going to build a desktop and am confused on what psu to get.
the specs for my computer will be:

i5 2500k
Corsair h60
Asus P8P67 Rev 3.1
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline Frostbyte 8gb
MSI Gtx 560 ti hawk
lancool pck62


I was either gonna go with a seasonic 620w or a silverstone strider 750w.

please help

just it should be more then enough, just if you plan on overclocking heavily it might struggle.

Assuming you don't plan on adding a second video card it should be fine.

even if he added a second card it'll be fine...

test system
Core i7 965 @ 3750 MHz (25x150 @ 1.35v)
2 x 560 ti

System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 449W

A good reputable 620W PSU will easily power that system with tons of room to spare.

just slight oc, maybe bring my cpu to 4ghz. and no second gpu will be added

oc'ing sandy cpus doesnt warrant a phenomenal increase in power consumption. for the 4 threaded cpus it'll in the magnitude of maybe 50-100 watts. maybe :)

your fine with 620w and that build

Although 620 will be fine, I suggest you go with the 750 if you can. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

Tons, you can run all that on a good 500w.
