I got these parts for my brand new PC build. I was wondering if i got the right amount of power for the build.

Mobo: Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Video card: EVGA GTX 275 Superclocked
HDD: Raptor 300GB
CPU: I7 920 (planning on OC to 4.2GHz)
RAM: Corsair XMS3 Dominator GT 1866Hz (6GB)
Watercooling: Swiftech MCP655 pump

the rest are a LCD fan controller (NZXT), DVD Drive, and 9 fans(3 of them are high performance)

So would a corsair HX850W psu be enough for this system? i check on the psu watt calculator and it said 659W, but that doesnt sound right imo.

Also in the future i might upgrade my video card later on.

how about if the CPU is at full load? cuz the cpu can consume up to 350W when overclocked to 4.2 on full load. i was alos thinking of upgrade to the new Nvidia cards( the gt 300 series)

850 is plenty, don't worry about it.

It will handle the CPU at full load as well. I'm running a GTX 295, a 4.2GHz i7, PhysX card, Xonar audio, card reader and 14 120mm fans.

Before my i7, I ran a Q9650 at 4.2GHz, the GTX 295, MCP 655 pump, 14 fans, PhysX card, Xonar, and 8Gb of ram.

alright thanks guys, so when will i need the 1000W corsair? GTX295 SLI?

Pretty much, high end (gtx275 and up) tri-sli and quadfire should be relegated to the 1kW.
