Question PSU support help

Hi guys i am new to this form. I bought a gaming rig with the below specs :-

Intel I7 950 3Ghz Processor
Intel DX 58SO Desktop board
ATX 5770 Graphics card
Crossair CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2X2)
Cooler Master 600W PSU
WD Caviar Green 2TB (64 MB) Hard disk

Sometimes I connect this rig to my 32 inch LG full HD tv.

Initially I had used some junk company's 750W PSU and my rig was rebooting continiously so I changed that to Cooler master 600W PSU now I am planning to buy a SSD from Intel, so will my PSU support adding a new hard disk or ssd coz its just 600W ?

You should be fine. A good quality PSU is allways better than a junky one that has a bit more Wattage. If you havent experienced any problems with the new PSU, adding another Hard drive should be fine. They only take somewhere in the region of 10W-20W to run on (depending on type etc).

It's a similar story with SSD's although, generally, they will require LESS wattage than a HD. (Think about 25% less on average). These are just ballpark figures, and highlight the general rule of thumb regarding the power requirements compared with each other. You should be ok to be honest.

Hey thanks for the reply. But when i connect my LG Full HD Tv with full 1080p resolution my screen starts to flicker or only once color will be displayed. But when i change the settings to 720p it works flawlessly. Could you please suggest me on this.

You are running close to the same thing I have. I7 950, Asus p6x58d-e, 6 gb corsair ddr3, xfx 5770, Huappuage Dual tuner card, 2 wd green 1tb hard drives. I am not a gamer have this set up for a HTPC. I am using a Corsaire tx 750 power supply. Have video out thru HDMI to 38" Samsung hd tv with no issues. My power supply is probably overkill but I like to make sure I have enough power to add more cards or hard drive.
