PC Spec is
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K, 4x 3.50GHz
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX660 2048MB
PSU: Cooler Master GX-Lite Series 500W
DVD Burner
Cardreader 52 in 1
Memory: 16GB RAM DDR3 PC1600 4*4GB
Cruical SSD 128MB sata 3
Second Hard Drive: 1TB HDD SATA3 7200rpm
Motherboard: ASUS P8B75-M

Question, will it be OK to install another Hard Drive into the PC, I understand that the Hard Drives use very little power, not sure what the load is on the PSU at present.

Cheers

Hi Lighthouse
Thanks for the links, wasn't able to access this page http://educations.newegg.com/t.....index.html
But the first link is fine, I done a calculation allowing for extra USB devices plus another Hard Drive and the recommendation is 426 Watts, so should be well able to cope.

Cheers
