    PSU sufficient enough?

    Hi people!

    I'm building a new rig for my gf ...
    nothing big, just for budget gaming ...

    i'm getting her an i5 ivy bridge cpu, 2x4gb of ram, a 660ti gpu and so on ^^

    what i would like to know is this:
    will this PSU: http://geizhals.at/584944 (Antec HCG 520) be sufficient enough to keep the system running?
    atm i've only planned for a HDD (1tb) but she's likely to add an SSD later on ... will it do the trick?

    Thanks in advance!
    My signature was too big, so now I use this one.

    That PSU will work great for that build.

    thanks for the quick answer
    i'm always a bit confused with PSUs

    i myself use an Antec HCG 750w in my rig, but i have 3 hdds, an old gtx460 as well as a 2nd generation i7 running ... ^^

    Yeah, that is more than enough for your build.
    Intel i5-3570K @ 4.7GHz | MSI Z77 Mpower | Noctua NH-D14 | Corsair Vengeance LP White 1.35V 8GB 1600MHz
    Gigabyte GTX 670 OC Windforce 3X @ 1372/7604MHz | Corsair Force GT 120GB | Silverstone Fortress FT02 | Corsair VX450

    Truth be told, 520W is technically more than what you'll need for that build, but a little wiggle room won't hurt.
