Hey guys. I just have a quick question. I'm going through the final stages in choosing my components for my very first build. It's going to be a gaming/video editing/rendering PC. I am going to be using the AMD FX 8350 and the Radeon 7950. I will most likely OC the 8350 to around 4.6 GHz on the Hyper 212 EVO (If I can) and I will also OC the 7950 around 1100 MHz, maybe 1200 MHz if it can. Will this 620w PSU be enough to power both of them? Or should I get something a bit beefier? I don't really want to spend more than $100 on a PSU.

(P.S. I will only ever run a single GPU setup. I will never run SLI/Crossfire. Too many problems I hear with that. So I'm not looking into spending a ton of money on a 800w+ PSU. Just something reliable and can get the job done

Thanks in advance guys! I will leave a link below to the parts I have selected.

I would kind of prefer a modular PSU, just to keep things nice and tidy. But wouldn't 550w be a little too low? I've seen benchmarks of 8350's reaching like 250w+ when OCed and under load. 7950's can get pretty high up there too.

Quesoblanco is right and 550w is more than enough for your rig, like the one meantioned.
