Do i have enough power???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all, i just bought a Thermaltake 850 toughpower gold. and after using a psu calculator i am worried that i don't have enough power.
I didn't take into account for Capacitor Aging. at 20% aging it is putting my power consumption at 849.

It would be ok but im not sure if that takes into accout that you never truly get what the psu is rated for.
CHeck out my rig and let me know what you think.

Just a quick summary,
I5 760
asus maximus 3 formula
gtx 470 qty 2 sli
8 interal sata hard drives
an H60
and tons of fans

Thanks
Aaron
