Will 450W PSU run my new RIG?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am planning to build a new rig and since PSU is the most important part of a build I am wondering if a Corsair 450W will run it. Here is the parts I will be running

CPU: E2160 (Will probably upgrade to E8400 in the future, but I don't want to change the PSU when I upgrade)
Motherboard: GIGABYTE EP35-DS3L
RAM: OCZ Reaper 2GB
Video Card: 8800GT (Have not yet decided which vendor to get from, will the vendor make a difference or do all 8800GT run at the same power)
Hard Drive: 1 WD 640GB, 1 Seagate 250GB
DVD/CD: 1 DVD/CD Burner

I will probably do some slight OC on the CPU and RAM.
Thanks.

Just pick the E4300 or something, I am sure it will be quite similar.
