Good enough for what? Without knowing how much you're going to try and run at once it's not a question anyone can answer. ;)

Good enough compared to the power of my current rig. It says it. maybe its unclearly worded?

good enough to keep up to my 4818hq

Formulating the question helped me finally find what i need.
