Default Hiper power supply

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817128005

I hear Hiper PSU's are good but this one only has 3 reviews so it seems a little iffy. Is this enough to power this build:
e6600
Gigabyte DS3
G.skill 2gb ram
8600ultra/8800gts320 (not sure which one yet)
Centurion 5 case
WD 250GB 7200rpm

For the Price it is a good deal.
And it is enough power for that build.

Enough but I would get one with a little more power, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131028

Also the reason it has low reviews is because it is low power and people stay away from low power becasue they need more.

People don't need more Power. They just think they do. Its not really a problem so long as they choose a reliable Brand.

But, getting back to this specific rig, A 480 watt, or a 450 watt power supply will power that Rig Fine.

And Hiper is a reliable brand right?

Also why did you put up a link for a mobo? I've chosen the DS3 already. Don't want to pay an extra 60 bucks.

Yes, it's a reliable brand. I have one, and it's great. Another great brand is FSP (Fortron).
