    Hi all,

    I'm considering a Haswell build with an i4670k (potentially overclocked), SSD, 2 storage drives and a few case fans. I currently have a CoolerMaster Silent Pro M600 (http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=2873) and hope to reuse this if possible. Do people think I can get away with this PSU and either a GTX680 or a 7970? I probably will attempt an overclock on the CPU also.

    Cheers

    Silent Pro is a 40A power supply (480W effective for the CPU and GPU).

    It's still OK. Will be about 75%-80% max load.
