I am replacing my current parts with a striker extreme mobo, Q6600 processor, 8800 GT 512, and new RAM I didnt think about it before but I have a 480W PSU atm and my friend brought it to my attention that this may not be enough power. Aside from putting the pieces in and trying it out does anyone know if that wont be enough or if there is a faster way to find out.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
