My Rosewill RG530 (bad choice, I know) has already begun to die after about 3 months of use. I'm thinking of getting a CORSAIR CX600 for reliability and extra wattage, and need to know if it can run my specs:

Mobo: ASUS F2A85-M PRO FM2 A85X
RAM: G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)
CPU: AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1GHz (APU)
HDD: Western Digital WD Blue 1TB

If any other components need to be listed, let me know in responses.

Thanks,
Lil95

Without a gpu, your pc will only need about 300W. Try a Seasonic 350W - a good brand

I have an APU, which is a combination of both a CPU and a GPU.

So technically, I do have a GPU, its just combined with my CPU.

Get this instead of the corsair cx

Power Supply: XFX 550W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($50.99 @ Amazon)
Total: $50.99

XFX is made by seasonic (OEM), better quality than the cx series

This is a great deal! Way less money for a Seasonic quality PSU. Can't wait to throw it in my PC and get away from my crap Rosewill PSU. The thing lasted a couple of months before starting to die out. Thanks man!

Just remember that it is not modular, if you wanted a modular one it would cost you an extra $10-20
