Can CX-500 v2 Handle it?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My Config:
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T TDP 125w
HD6950 1GB
ASUS M4A88T-MLE
8GB DDR3 1333Mhz
4.7TB HDD

My budget is 3.5k Max. I did a PSU calc. Through Various Sites and found out that the Total System usage at 100% Peak Load of my new Config will be 423W
My question is that according to my budget i can get a Corsair CX-500V2 nearby so will it be enough to handle it as it is 80 Plus. was is its actual output? Thanks a lot. smile.gif

P.S- New to this Group.

100% sure.

6950 doesn't take much power to operate.

I'd get the 600w just to be safe and for overclocking headroom.
$10 extra.

you were perfectly fine with a 500watt btw

I run an overclocked 480, and with my system during games, I do not pull more then 350 watts from the wall thumb.gif

It'll be a tight squeze. The CX500 is actually more along the lines of a 430w power supply. The CX600 is a 480w.

If you've already bought it, the CX500 should do fine, but it'll be close. Don't waste the money on any of the CX line though if you're buying a new unit (the CX430 being the only exception...but thats not enough for your build).

Here's some units for you to look into (from cheapest to most expensive):
