Thread Starter 
will a corsair cx600 handle this gtx 780?

if not can you prefer some that are good enough and are modular

also if their are ones that around the price of the cx600 can you list a few please. i dont like having unneeded cords sitting in my case. thanks!

SeaSonic G-550 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151119
Rosewill Capstone 550-M - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182262

Both are excellent power supplies and great value for money, both are semi-modular too.
The G-550 is currently cheaper because it's on sale and is slightly higher quality than the Capstone so if you're buying now then go with that.

doesnt it need to be at least 600w though?
i also want to overclock my 3570k to 4.0-4.3
i also have a fan controller that has 6 fans hooked up and two cpu cooler fans for my cooler master evo. 2ssd's and 1 hdd.

Not even remotely. A proper 550W leaves you with all the overclocking headroom you will need.

Your CX600 can handle 780 just fine.

It's good for 46A / 552w on the 12v rail (at 30*C, at least) so that should be enough watts. It's clearly a middling-quality unit, but at $38 AR $20 the price makes it hard to resist.

I'd still recommend the Rosewill Capstone-650 ($72 shipped w/ promo code EMCXPVN34) though, as it uses much higher-quality components and is rated to temperatures of 50*C.

It has 46A on 12V which is still plenty. Granted, it's a mid range unit at best, but I'm not sure I'd go swapping it for something else if I had it already.

^^$72 is a very good deal on the Capstone though. You might want to consider that.
