Hey guys I'm building a PC and I'm wondering how much power I need to run this thing.
Here are the specs:
AMD FX 6300 SIX CORE 3.5GHZ
SHAPPHIRE RADEON 7790 OC 1GB DDR5
GIGABYTE 78LMT-USB3
HYPER 212 EVO
6 OR 8GB 1600MHZ RAM
SEAGATE 1TB 64MB

overclocking right?! 600-650 watts would be great.

Even with overclocking 500w is more than enough. A good 450w unit like an XFX450 will be plenty as well.

Well I don't plan on doing anything to serious. I was just more thinking putting everything together and pressing the power button, no program overclocking. So I was thinking 500w but would it be safe?

Cause the last person said "Overclocking right?! 600-650 would be great.

500 would be fine and look for one to carry at least 21 AMPs on th e12 volt rail ;)

Alright well, I guess its 2 against one so sure... I was looking at the Corsair CX 500M would it suffice?
