Solved

Need some advice on build before I buy.

Will this build work if I were to put in a r9 290x or a gtx 780?

If I need to change anything I can go up to a max of $600

  1. -780 will work(but i STRONGLY recommend the tx750 of corsair)

    -about amd, wait until benchmarks(although i don't think that it will be extremely power hungry)

    Why is that?
  3. 780 is an upper high end graphics card that requires a certain amount of voltage and electric current. The cx series aren't reccomended for such high end components.
    cx < tx < hx < ax (only for corsair psu's)

    The recommened wattage for my build was about 450w, a 750w psu won't do the trick?
  5. Wattage is not the only requirement.

    power = voltage * electric current

    Your cx has a 12V/60A rail, so it will be compatible with (almost) every vga of market. My point is that you should not save up money from your psu

    Can you pick a good psu for me? I have a limit of $600, thank you if you can find something
