okay ive asked this question before but i just want a straight forward answer, nothing confusing. i ordered a gtx 770 evga superclocked and a corsair cx 500. now i emailed cyberpower and they said there wouldnt be any problem with the system. id like to confirm with some experts. will my pc be okay and if not when should i upgrade to a new psu. thank you, also i dont plan on overclocking anything in my system. also i have an i5-4670k. The guy from cyberpower said i even could have a 10% overclock.

If I remember right the 770 recommends a 600W PSU with 42A over the 12V rail. They always over recommend but it might be worth getting a more powerful PSU for future proofing.

nVidia recommends a 600w PSU for the 770. It should run, but be aware that there's a possibility that it might not.

well cyberpower tests their PCs before shipping it so theyd contact me if something was wrong, just they havent started building it yet. also if it does run, could it damage the card???

It can provide up to 38A (456W) on the 12V rail, and the combined TDP of your CPU and GPU is 314W. So at stock, it'll run alright. There is technically quite a bit of room for overclocking, but the CX series isn't equipped with the best components, so I'd recommend going a bit easy on it and not overclocking much (or at all).

so itll run at stock without damage and i shouldnt overclock anything until i get a new powersupply, is that what youre saying?

Well, a modest CPU overclock should be okay, but otherwise yeah.

do you want my full system specs to see if it could power all of it?

Couldn't hurt, but unless you have a lot of stuff crammed in there it shouldn't really make a difference.

And when you do go on cyberpowerpc.com and put all those in it says the recomended requirement was a 500w so i went with a CX 500, guess i shouldve done more research

Well, to be honest that motherboard isn't all that well suited for overclocking anyway. A small overclock without touching the voltage is the most I would recommend.
