    If you're concerned, go for the 430W Seasonic instead.

    Seasonic S12 430W Silent ATX2.0 should be fine, but is you are prepared to spend a little more, and want to have the extra headroom available in future, go for a Seasonic S12 500W Silent ATX2.0 - and this will last you for years and several upgrades / rebuilds!
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    Can I suggest the Akasa PaxPower 460W? It's very quiet and is powering my E6300 system (see my system link) nicely.

    CustomPC gave it a good review and it's less than £50.
