Thread Starter 
Sorry first post dont know if this is the right section but anyway..

I built my system a while ago im only 14 But I am thinking of upgrading it but dont know if my OCZ 700w Modstream can handle anymore

My specs soo far..

Core i7 950
6Gb Corsair Dominator
AMD 6870
4 Fans
Seagate 500gb P

Just wondering if I could go Raid with 2 SSD's and upgrade the memory to an overall of 12gb ?

Thanks much appreciated )

Easily doable, I ran my sig rig on a corsair HX650 for a month before I replaced to an AX850. And that's just because i'm going to get a second GTX570.

compuman is correct, you will still have room to spare. SSDs/Ram play a small role in wattage consumption when compared to video cards.
