  1. A Core 2 Duo E6300, and probally with 1GB DDR2 533Mhtz, and a 7600GS

    The PSU is a Thermaltake 420watt.

    Hello,

    Yes, it's enough, but for your assurance, buy a new PSU with a power of 550W.

    With that system and a 420W PSU, you already have at least 40-50 Watts of upgrade headroom.
    Putting wattage aside, what is the amperage on the +12V rail(s)? Consult the chart on the label at the side of the PSU.
