If you intend to SLI a 560 Ti, you probably need at least a 650W PSU. 750 to be safe, 650 as the bare bare bare minimum. If you SLI, you will have very little overclocking headroom.

Get a 750W PSU.

While you could almost certainly get away with it, a sli set of 560ti's and a good overclock may be more than you should put on that GS. I haven't heard the best things about that model. Personally, id suggest a seasonic 760.

And welcome to OCN.

Also another question with this GS600 psu how would overclocking the GPU and CPU currently be, would I have enough power. The GPU Overvoltage Function with MSI Afterburner and all the software that comes with it I have never used or have any overclocking exprience at all i've built many computers but never done anything that was stock stuff.

Welcome. I have the same psu and i have my I5 at 4.2ghz and my Galaxy 560 ti gc bumped up to 900.1800,2200 on MSI afterburner. you should be fine unless you do sli then you will need more power. The tx 850 is a really good psu. Just giving you my experience with the 600 psu running same cpu and card.

Go with TX850 as PSU (at least). Otherwise it looks good.
