Hello, I am currently trying to get as many opinions as possible about corsair 520hx being able to power my new system. I've read couple topics about it, and talked to people who have similar or even better system running on that psu. What is your opinion ? I would also like your opinion about RAM, which one should i go with ?

Here is a link to corsair 520hx http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139001

Here are the parts I'm getting:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128359

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115017

GPU: EVGA GTX 260 core 216 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130434

RAM: G.SKILL DDR2 800 4GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231122

or G.SKILL PI Black DDR2 800 4GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231209

HDD: WD 500GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136073

I am not planning on overclocking anything. I also have 5 fans but i guess they dont use that much power. I don't know if this has any affect on voltage usage but i will be playing on 1280x1024 resolution. Maybe since i wont be stressing video card with high resolution it will use less power ? Thank you for your responses.

That psu will power that rig in its sleep, infact you could probably add another gtx 260 worth of power and it would still work. dont much care for the ram
That's not much of a response now is it ?
