Is my Antec current gamer 520 enough?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, so I bought some parts for my computer and after I did I found this forum so I'll ask you if I did well enough with the power supply (and the other parts)...

CPU: i5 3570k + Noctua NH-C14 + Antec formula 7
GPU: Gigabyte gtx 660ti oc 3gb
RAM: Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1600 4x 4 GB
MoBo: Asrock Z77 fatal1ty PERFORMANCE
Other components:
Samsung Super-WriteMaster 24x
2.5" Crucial M4 128gb ssd
2.5" Seagate Momentum XT 500gb

The supply is an Antec High Current Gamer - HCG520M. I am not planning to get AMD gpus and crossfire. Maybe I'll be doing some minor CPU oc to 4.2 - 4.5 ghz some day later.

I use 2 screens: 20" primary and 15" secondary, mostly for work and other production enhancement.
I am gaming sometimes.
The graphic card will be used for bioinformatics - protein rendering / afm / tem / sem and other related stuff (I hope I chose good. money is very limited as I am a student and most of it came as a gift - thanks tradition for Christmas :-). Got this pc parts as a great offer moneywise).

The tower is a fractal arc midi with 5 fans. I assume the highest power consumption is the GraKa and the CPU... What do you think, will it be enough to run stable? How will the setting perform? I hope I just did not throw the money out of a window literally...

GraKa - Interesitng work for GPU tongue.gif

The GPU will be the largest power draw, but that sized PSU will be plenty for your system smile.gif.

I've got a seasonic 660w that would be able to do SLI/CF

And if you ever want to run an AMD single card, you will be fine with that PSU too.

Ok thanks!
GraKa refers to Grafikkarte which is a german word for graphic card ;-) sometimes I am mixing up the languages a bit.
