My System Specs

Default Enouhg Power ?

I'am planning on buying an EVGA GTX 480, as you CAN see in m'y system specs m'y PSU is a HX 620. I'm also planning on buying annother SSD and change my cpu for a 1090T. Will m'y PSU have enough juice? I've the feeling that i'm getting close to its limite.

I think you're getting up there, but I think it should handle it fine. I ran a 4870x2 and an overclocked Q9400.
Give it a test run before you buy another one and see if you don't have to get another?

You are good to go with that PSU. The only thing is you may notice the PSU fan start to make a bit more noise as the PSU gets a draw of >50-60% (not that it will be audible above the 480).

That being said, I wouldn't go for a crazy OC on CPU and GPU with that PSU.
