    Question Does it have enough power to run all this?

    Will I be able to run a system with the following parts off of this power supply?
    'Corsair HX Series CMPSU-620HX 620W ATX Triple Power Supply 120MM Fan 12V 50A Continuous 24PIN ATX Modular'

    Or do I need this one?
    'Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 120MM Fan'

    Part list:
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850.
    CPU FAN: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro for Intel Socket 775.
    RAM: Crucial Ballistix (BL2KIT12864AA804) DDR2 800Mhz.
    MOBO: Asus P5K-Premium
    HD: Western Digital Caviar (WD5000AAKS) 500GB SATA.
    FLOPPY: Sony 1.44MB Floppy Disk Drive.
    CD/DVD-RW: LG GSA-H62L(Black) SATA.
    VIDEO: EVGA e-GeForce 8800GTX 768MB.
    SOUND: Creative Sound Blaster X-FI Xtreme Gamer.
    CASE: NZXT Zero ATX Aluminum Silver Case. (7 120mm Fans, 1 80mm Fan)

    If I can get by without a problem on the Corsair 620 then it's a lot cheaper...

    Is there an easy way to tell the total power drain of all the parts? I'm guessing the two biggest power users would be the Video and the CPU.
    When I dream,
    I carry a sword in one hand,
    a gun in the other...

    Well, the GPU requires a 450W PSU min, and with everything else I would go with the 750. I mean the price is only 10 bucks more on newegg so it's not really a big deal. Also, if you ever wanted to add more to your system, you would have the additional power.

    The Corsair HX-620 should be fine for that setup (if you go dual v/c & quad core then it will pay to get the higher output one).
