Hard drive: 500GB WD

I got a 520W PSU and rocking a stock clocked GTX 560, i would say go for it, Thermaltake is a decent brand and if your so concerned about power consumption just buy a reference card (but for God's sake buy one with a good custom cooler, i'm raging bout my stupid Gainward right now, it sounds like a combine during gaming).

Edit: What's the worse it could happen? Even if the card gets destroyed you still got warranty for 2 years minimum right?

Realistically it's an old outdated overrated ~400w power supply and it would really struggle with either of those cards.
I wouldn't recommend it.

Out of all modern GPUs, which one have same or less PSU req than my G80 based 8800GTS 320MB ?

What about ATI video cards, can my PSU handle HD6850 and HD6870 ? Personally I prefer GTX 460 since its much cheaper (in my country), but if my PSU can't handle it, then I might consider buying HD6850

Q6600 is actually 95w (I have G0 stepping)

I wouldn't risk it that powersupply is for a basic system nothing more... I just bought a antec neo 550 for like 40 bucks... its one 12 v rail is enough for both a decent cpu/gpu... It really is inexpensive and you'll be saving yourself if it don't work...

edit: I have the same thermaltake as you... its running a celeron and a 7300le... and a laptop harddrive.. thats how much I trust it...

The worst that could happen is an exploded psu and if the safety fails to kick in a potentially fried computer. Thew Tr2's do about 20-300W less then they are rated for. IF you've got the cx430 you are fine.

I think you'll be fine w/everything at stock but I wouldn't go OC'ing things w/that PSU.
