Okay so I'm building a decent rig for christmas on a budget. I already have some parts that i can use and was woundering.
Can the thermaltake tr2 (non modular) 600w handle powering:

g.skill Ripjaw x series 8gb set

AMD Phenom II x4 965 black edition 3.4 ghz (im not over clocking it)

MSI 97a-G46 AM3+ AMD 970 sata 6gb/s

Nvidia Geforce 210 1gb ddr2 pcie 2.0

with

250gb 7200 rpm hard drive

500 gb 5400 rpm hard drive

Antec ice 100 case

and a dvd burner/player

Please let me know!

I ALREADY have the thermaltake it isn't bad tbh.
Also will it handle that system minus the 210 and with a 550 ti?

and im not over clocking until i have a 1300 watt psu and water coolingl.

I already have the 210 it isn't bad i can get pretty stable frame rates on a lot of games. but im saving for a 550 ti
 
Well the 550 ti doesn't use much power to begin with. It only requires a 400 watt as a minimum.

where with the 560ti it requires 500 watts

Honestly though when it comes down to it I would either wait till the 600 series goes on the cheap or maybe even look for the AMD cards. The 600 and 7000 series are a bit lighter on power then the 500 series.

1300 watt that might be borderline overkill if your running 6990's in crossfire.
