As you guys remember, I got my crappy Coolermaster 600 Extreme Plus, whichi is still running good. However, I don't trust it enough to overclock really high and change my videocard. This being said, I'm going to get a 620HX for Christmas, so I could probably change my videocard by February.
Good idea ? Is it a good power supply ?

What you have (eXtreme Power 600W) will work, and will even overclock. You've got enough headroom. It's just... Crap. Low efficiency, anemic +12V rail, not all protections are present so if it does die it might fry the computer... It will run what you have, but if you're considering replacing it in any way, go for it. With an HX620W your computer will run faster, cooler, consume less power from the wall, and will very easily let you Crossfire that 4870 without worrying about power.

Do it.
