Hey Guys,

I have a quick question about my HTPC. I'm currently running a PNY GX2 that supposedly requires a 580w power supply. My power supply is a Thermaltake Toughpower 600w. Anyway, as things are I have 2 optical drives and one 7200rpm hard drive. My question is, Will I be safe with this amount of power if I want to add two more SATA 7200 hard drives? I don't want to overload the supply becuase right now things are running perfectly. Any help would be great. Thanks.

9800 GX2? Then a 600W PSU is good enough. The card itself consumes at most only 200W.
