You need a 500W with good Amps... Plus the seasonic only has 1 pci-e connector.

SSD - 5W
Wireless card - 1-5W
Sound card - 5W

Not to mention the RAM, all the motherboard's innards (like the SATA controller and the BIOS and the dozens of other controllers for ethernet, USB, firewire and so on), the fans, and powering that headset, mouse and keyboard, plus any other random peripherals that the computer is powering (like charging mobile devices).

Another reason that you'll want something with a higher wattage is that it doesn't actually have enough connections to plug in everything you want to buy (the GTX56 Ti needs two PCI-E connectors - that current PSU only has one).

naa im not getting the Phantom GTX 560 Ti i was just saying if i was gonna get one a gpu thats gonna be the one and yes i know if i got a gpu i need more power. + i dont even think nivida works witht he mobo...

i dont know why are u guys making a big deal on the power supply dude im not even gonna get a video card + mny old old pc had about 450w psu with a video card in there and it worked fine

The Nvidia will work with any mobo that has a PCI-E x16 slot

You didn't make that very clear, but fair enough. That power supply will be plenty, then

Think of it this way, you power supply is to your computer as your heart is to your body. If you have a weak heart your body falters and crashes under stress. This is the same with your pc. If you run too close to the minimum power required it will create an unstable pc. Also of note, there is more to be considered than watts. Keep in mind the high amperage requirements of say a gtx560. Back in the pre-g92(Nvidia) days I ran what seemed like big systems on 400 watts. Now I'm pushing it myself with a gtx260 @ 520 watts.
