Hello, I'm new to building my own system and had some questions I was hoping someone more experienced could help me with.  I'm putting together a budget gaming build and I'm looking into this PSU.

 

Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W ATX12V v2.01 SLI Ready Power Supply

http://www.newegg.co...Item=N82E168...

I was wondering if this PSU will be enough to run cards such as the GTX760/7870 AMD or GTX 660/650 ti boost with no issues. I know it has enough 600W power but I'm not familiar with rail and voltage stuff.  Also if you can see any issues with the parts I've chosen that would be super as well.  Partsbuilder seems to think its are safe as well as other research I've done. 

AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor ($99.99 @ Microcenter)
Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ ATX AMD Motherboard/Combo (Free @ Microcenter)
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) ($49.99 @ New Egg)
Storage: Western Digital Scorpio Black 500GB 2.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($45.99 @ Microcenter)
Case: Diablotek EVO CPA-6170 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($34.99 @ Microcenter)

Thanks for your help.

Don't buy Rosewill PSUs, they aren't the worst out there but you can do much better. Is $45 your max budget?

 

edit: I take it back, don't buy that PSU, Rosewill is all over the place and every model is different so it's a crapshoot. currently someone is asking the same PSU question here  http://forums.overcl...howtopic=197663

That psu only puts out 19 amps on the 12 volt rail which may not run a gtx 760 , if I were you I'd try and get one that would put out at least 45 or 50 amps and about 650 watts. Not sure about the Rosewill brand as some folks like them and others not so much.
