Hi guys i'm having a bit of trouble i know nothing about psu's and i want to upgrade my system i've researched online and lots of people have told me i need a higher watt psu i am very confused i've been looking at a 600W Corsair CXM but im not sure about the connections and if it will power my pc
Here are my current specs:
vibox predator green led case
16g 1033 mhz ram
1tb 7200rpm hard drive
and a gigabyte 78lmt-usb3 motherboard
and i want to replace my radeon 6670 with a radeon 7870
would a 600W Corsair CXM power this upgrade and my other parts or if it cant are there any other alternatives?
The Corsair CX500M or CX600M would work fine for your specs. The HD7870 requires a minimum of 500W with 23A available from the 12v rail - the CX500M provides up to 38A for the 12v rail and the CX600M provides up to 46A on the 12v.
