    use this puppy http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

    and hell yeah 650w is enough for that systehm look at my specs I run pretty much exactly the same on a CX500W with no issues at all.

    the only things worth mentioning is the CPU is stock clocked, and the GPU is heavily overclocked... 2 hard drives.. stock heatsink and two 120mm case fans.

    I use 2 of those PSUs in my Rigs and they do a fantastic job. 1366 i7 920 @4GHz and a GTX480 @ 972 core. You should be well within spec and this PSU has a high amp single rail which is nice too.

    That's soooo cool. I was helping a clan buddy out on 'mumble' doing some virtual shopping with him last night and we were talking about the exact same set up - uber co-incidence or what?

    I managed to coax him into getting a GTX 580 instead of the 570. :cool:

    exact same setup as in mini itx and all? I love cramming this much power into a tiny case :)

    Good 650W like Corsair can even run GTX580 so you'll be fine.
