Default Looking for PSU advice for 560 Ti

EVGA 560 Ti Superclocked (900mhz) min requirements state 500w w/ 30amps total power on 12v rails.

My Enermax Liberty 500w PSU meets these reqs (has 32a).

I just wanna be sure I'm not gonna push it past the limit since my CPU has major OC.

Currently running:
q9450 at 3.8ghz and 1.40v
GTX 460 768mb at 860mhz
H70 watercooler
4 120mm fans
1 140mm fan
2 HDDs
1 DVD burner

So ya, the 560 ti has more SPUs, more memory and higher clock, so I just wanna be sure I'm not going too far. Plus, I will OC the 560 ti as far as possible... I think I've read ppl getting them over 1000mhz but I'm not sure how many ppl get it past 900mhz.

I do have an OCZ ModXtreme Pro 600w w/ 42amps that I could swap with. I just trust the Enermax as being more robust and bullet proof. The gaming machine is also a SFF and so doing a PSU swap is kind of a pain in the ass :P

I've played with PSU Calculator Lite, but it's hard to know which components affect the 12v rails, so I'm not sure.

Although the liberties are older units, you should be just fine with a single card on that configuration. I run a LOT more than you do on 650W.

I would rather believe and find god doesn't exist than to not believe and find that he does.

Well, I got the 560 Ti and so far so good, it's running on the Liberty 500w. It even overclocks from to 1GHZ and is stable!
