It needs to be an ATX power supply that's how big :) .... if no crossfire plans, you need a quality 500~550 watt supply to be pretty comfortable.

Supahos beat me to it on the size...
More seriously, he's right on the wattage too, and there are better PSUs than the Corsair "CX," like anything built by Seasonic (their own, XFX), or a Rosewill Capstone.

I only wanted to know will CX600 suffice, I didnt need recommendations for a PSU but I might think about getting a XFX instead.

I would probably get the xfx over the CX600, but either should work fine I just like seasonic (maker of the xfx psu)

well just for your info the cx600 isnt that great of a powersupply. the xfx 550 is quite alot better and is made by seasonic one of the leaders in powersupplies for quite some time and of today!

So, xfx 550 will be more than enough for my rig?
