    Yes, that's perfectly adequate.

    Edit: assuming that's an efficient PSU, I've never heard of Codegen. Not one of those £20 budget things is it?

    If it was a 400W seasonic, silverstone etc. then yes. Frankly, I haven't heard of Codegen so can't comment on their quality. If it's a cheap budget thing, then I would just buy a nice one for piece of mind. But maybe someone else who has dealt with Codegen can give a better assessment.

    In that case I wouldn't rely on it, may want to splash out for a new PSU. A 400W shouldn't set you back much.

    I have no idea what those prices relate to in terms of pound sterling, but the slightly (?) more expensive Seasonic would be a better bet.

    Seasonic S12-430

    Of course, the Corsair is nice too (520W) and would give a little more flexibility in upgrade options (i.e. graphics cards) but at 1,900 Kr that could be a fortune!?

    Even a quality 350W will more than do the job.

    I have a 4 year old 420W Tagen powering an E6320 and an 8800GTS and it's still nowhere near fully loaded, if that's any indication.
