    Default 430 watts enough?

    i was thinking of building a new rig which consist of the parts listed below:

    E6600
    gigabyte nf650 sli
    2gb kingston 667 ram
    msi 8800 gts 320mb
    2x sata wd 320gb
    1x lg h62n sata dvdrw drive
    2x 120mm fan in casing

    can all this be powered by an antec earthwatts 430 PSU?
    is it sufficient? the extreme PSU calculator shows 380+,but i am still unsure about the +12 rail amperage..

    Should be fine. I've never met an online power calculator I completely trusted.

    Plenty. Not even half on that power supply can provide.

    Translation: Plenty. Not even half of what power supply can provide.

    So is it sufficient or that he means that the consumption will only be half the PSU can provide?

    Yes, the PSU is plenty, the build will only use half that 430W. I understood that right off the bat.

    Thanks for translation.
    English is not my native language.
    stalker88 your rig (at stock frequencies/voltages) under games will need ~170W DC, so it's a long way until 430W.
