I dunno about a fast Core i7 and GTX285 on 450W. How many amps on the 12v rail?
If it worked, I definitely wouldn't overclock anything.

Is the GTX285 dual GPU?

If yes, you're above the limits.

If its single card, it'll work.

Which ThermalTake 450W is that in particular?

thats what i thought. a mate of a mate of mine is opening a pc store and is selling that and i thought the psu wouldnt be able to run it all.

No. It's a TR2 RX 450W, which means it's a mediocre 300W. Kill it with fire.

A real, quality 450W should do the job.

I wouldn't recommend it as the total draw at max tdp would run close to 525, while you wouldn't always be running at that rate you do want to keep a buffer between max possible draw and your psu thus 600 watts draw you want a 660 minimum.

If I can make a recommendation I would look at getting something like this power supply it will run you about 70 after rebates and tax and most likely save on your electric bill while giving you a little breathing room.

It would be preferable to look at a 750 (to provide room for future upgrades)something like this, or this, or if your more budget conscious you can take a look at this one here

Dont forget to take into account mem/mobo(50-80w), hdds(7-14w), combo drive(5-11w), and lastly usb mouse/keyboard would tack on an extra watt or two depending.

im not actually buying said system. my mates friend is gonna be selling it in is store when it opens. he said it would be fine but i have my doubts. my cpu pull 170 aparrently. my gfx card alot more than w/e the factory rating is. so that alone would almost eat the 450w. maybe at stock it would scrap threw though
