PSU for future upgrades?

I am currently building my very first gaming pc and I am wondering about my power supply choice. Is it possible with this configuration (see below) to run an after market cooling system (propably a Corsair H60) when I have the money for it.
Configuration:
CPU: AMD FX-6300, 3,5GHz, 6 core.
MB:990FXA-GD65.
Storage: sandisk SSD 32GB SATA III,
Seagate 1TB SATA III 7600 rpm 64 mb.
GPU: MSI AMD Radeon R9 270X, 2GB.
RAM: Kingston Hyperx 2x4GB.
Power supply: Corsair 600 W CX M Builder series.

Will this power supply handle what is to come? And as an additional question could this set up handle a Crossfire with 2 GPU's?

    Certainly it would handle this rig !! If you are planning to go with multi GPU later I would suggest you to get 750W+ else this is more than enough

    Thanks!
    I think that I will have the 600W one. Maybe it's better to hassle with one GPU first :))
  3. Haha, yes you can have 1 GPU 1st and when required you can always upgrade or xfire the 270x you got. At that time you can get 750W :) Good luck !!
  4. The CX600 IS A BUDGET POWER SUPPLY with very poor capacitors.

    All CX supplies are very poor.


    Don't buy it.
  5. For a single card setup.

    What would be the right PSU choice, If I was to run two graphics cards?
  7. If you are running 2 GPU, get 750W +
    It purely depends on what GPUs you are running
