I am getting an e6300 and planning on oc'ing it to around 3.0. 7950gt for the GPU that I might OC some also. 2gb ram. 4 case fans and a Zalman on the cpu and another on the GPU. Anyway, the PSU I have picked right now is the 600w OCZ Gamer blah blah supply. Is this 600w enough since I am going to OC the CPU and possibly the 7950gt as well? I have just heard the 7950 is a little power hungry so I dont know if using it and overclocking it and the cpu would require a psu greater than what I have picked. Let me know, thanks!

It should be enough, but there's a chance that 7950 will suck enough power to make things unstable.

600W should be enough. Just make sure you get one with dedicated rails. You may want to consider a 700W PSU to avoid instability issues that sudo mentioned.

I'm just amazed that these computers suck so much power. Think of the environment, mind you a 7950 would be nice. just make sure you plant a tree.
