dont worry about the PSU. I've used the same PSU on a build for a friend with a HD6870 and 2500k.

Yes it has plenty of power to run lots of fancy things but CoolerMaster PSU's are hit and miss. Some are amazing buys, others are a ticking timebomb waiting to happen so I avoid them alltogeather. One of the local PSU guru's can chime in on that specific unite though.

It's not going to blow up on him but I would say for the same price point why not buy something more reliable?

such as
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371029 the 620c version is also available with the same promocode

Theyd on't blow up, just go bad...sorry if my wording gave the wrong impression.

EDIT: I have used the Eco Neo's in many many builds. Amazing buys for the money. Very solid unit's.
