Will my current PSU be enough for my new build?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Will my CORSAIR CX series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE be enough to power my new build?


New build:

GPU: ASUS GTX 780 Direct CU II
MOBO: Sabertooth Z77 Intel (pending)
CPU: Intel i5 4670K
CASE: Corsair 650D
HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM
SSD: Samsung EVO 120GB (pending)

No, it won't. That is a sub-par PSU that is meant for systems for non-gaming/overclocking applications.

Ok. Can you recommend one to me then?

Im gonna say NO as well, the CX series were not that good and that build will pull near max power it can output when your under full load.

You're good to go thumb.gif

Keep in mind that it will not be enough if you plan to go SLI in the future.

Can you repeat that again?

It really depends on your budget and whether you plan on SLIing in the future.

I don't plan on SLIing in the future, budget really isn't an issue, I just don't want to spend more than 150 dollars on a new PSU. biggrin.gif



EDIT: But Tornado seems to think that the PSU I have is enough to support it.

likely compatible, will work
But better get this one, if you no planning to get a second graphic card.

Nvidia recommends at least a 600W for a GTX780, though that looks nice for the price.

The Corsair CX600 that you have will meet all requirements to power the system for your new build. Of course, you could get a new one and spend an additional ~ 100 bucks, but since you're not going to SLI, I don't think that would make sense.

I wouldn't trust my rig with that PSU,also i see you have a sabertooth z77 (pending) you do know that a z77 is not compatiable with an i5 4670k right,z77 with a 3570k socket 1155....z87 with a 4670k socket 1150....
