I am upgrading my current system by upgrading the CPU to a FX-6350, to a GPU which is the Asus R9 270X and to either a Corsair CX 500 builder series or a Novatech 500watt powerstation V2 modular

I am wondering if they will cope with the the upgrades that I am getting as I dont want to go over £45 for a PSU
PS my motherboard is a M5A97 PRO which will cope with both upgrades I just need advice on the GPUs thanks for any replys! :)

Good point, is there a modular version of this PSU or semi modular for around the same price wattage and efficiency? I go mad over cable management sorry :S
