My processor is overcloked and running as a 3.1 ghz.
I'm planing on adding a couple of ata hardrives a 100gb and a 200gb.
I'm also planing on a adding another dvd burner that i got a while back but is a good one,the one i currently have on my build i got it cheap it works,but it makes noise wen copying data from a cd/dvd over to hd,is a funny noise kind of anoying a bit like a loud pc fan.
Just like to know if my PSU can handle all of that.

thanks in advance
