You dont need a 600 watts PSU for that build spend money on a decent 450 watts PSU and not a Corsair CX

Not a bad idea to have some head room on a PSU. It's never a good idea to get a PSU that just has enough power to run your components. Bad things happen as it wears out. 600 Watt is fine for a build like this. Little extra but not total overkill.

Its already way overkill a 400 watts PSU could power that system fine so no you dont have a point

Spend money on a good 450 watts PSU not a mediocre 600 watts CX
