Thread Starter 
I am wondering if a Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500 W PSU will power my system? I did not overclock it

Specs are below

It should be completely fine. The power supply is pretty decent as shown in this review.

X4 stock at 125w. 6850 is 125w max plus other things. You are looking for 320w. That CM 500w only pull 30a/360w. I think it is fine for now but watch out if you add components.

It will run what you've got, but if you don't own it already, get a different PSU.
