So, i bought my psu before my gpu. I ended up having more money at the end to buy a good gpu. i haven't bought it yet.
AMD FX 8320 3.5 ghz
One 2200RPM fan (CPU)
Two NZXT case fans
Cd/DVD optical drive
3.5" 7200RPM HDD
8gb DDR3 - 1600
2 pci expansion cards (usb 3.0 and wireless adapter)
ASUS M5a97 Mobo
Asus 280X 1.07ghz
So do I have to buy a cheaper GPU or is it ok to use. I am going to be gaming and i don't want it to crash. PCPARTPICKER says its 490w, but now that just doesn't seem right. I have a Corsair CX600M 80+ Bronze.
well, a system equipped with Processor Intel Core i7-4960X @ 4.2GHz MotherboardASRock Fatal1ty X79 Professional Disk DrivesSamsung SSD 840 EVO (750GB) MemoryG.Skill RipjawZ DDR3-1866 4 x 8GB (9-10-9-26)
and Radeon R9 280X
only consume 290-311 watt for total power consumption while gaming..
and 360-393 watt while stressing with Furmark for total power consumption
so, your current psu is more than enough to run your system and have plenty headroom for other parts...
