It's a bit tricky, there are two versions of the psu i have, one of them have weaker 12v rails but both are 600w. Mine is the one rated at 20a on each (again thats peak performance). On the product page it does not say how much watt is on the 12v rails but I know it's listed on the psu so Im gonna calculate more exactly when I get home. Still I'm thinking it's cutting it close, I also have 3 hdd's, dvd burner, 3x 120mm fans and one 80mm, some lights and the x-fi in in there.

EDIT: Gonna see if I can find those psu's on the swedish online shopping sites and compare some prices.
