I just bought a custom built pc from an acquaintance, and was wondering if the power supply he had in it is sufficient, or if I need to get more wattage. The build he had was:

Intel i7 920 (w. Zalman 9000 CPU heatsink)
EVGA X58 Classified Mobo
12GB OCZ PC12800 memory
120gb OCZ Vertex 2 Sandforce SSD
EVGA GeForce GTX470
Two 1tb Hiatachi 7200rpm drives in raid
DVD-RW drive

He was powering it with a 600W Cooler Master Silent Pro power supply. He said it ran perfectly fine with that amount of power, but I'll be adding another 2tb WD green hard drive, and possibly another SSD if I don't have enough room on the 120gb one already in it, and I also plan on overclocking the CPU and possibly the processor. Will I need to get a more powerful PSU, and if so, how many watts do you think I'll need?

Thanks for the help,
