    I have a A8N-SLI Deluxe that is begining to crap out and is out of warranty...so...I'm thinking about upgrading the whole box.

    I'm thinking about building a system similar to the rig in this article at Tomshardware.com: http://www.tomshardware.com/2007/01/18/overclocking-guide-part-1/

    When finished I will have the same CPU, RAM, and mobo (core duo e6300, 2 gigs of OCZ RAM on a GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3). I currently have a 500w PSU on my old AMD 64 2X board. I'd like to keep all the rest of my 'innards' the same which are:
    A Sony DVD player, A DVD burner, 2 RAID 0'd 74 gig Raptors, 2 other SATA drives, an Audigy 2ZS sound card and a ATI X1900XTX video card.

    Will my current 500 W PSU be enough or will I need to upgrade it too?

    Thanks ahead of time for any advise anyone cares to share.

    Yes it will be more than enough.
