Power supply question.

Hey all, I need help with my rig real quick, I'm looking at upgrading my cpu to a amd fx-8320 processor and would like to know if my psu can handle it.
My entire rig is in my sig just using a different processor at the moment, will my current 500w psu be able to handle the new cpu?
Thanks in advance.

    I think you will be fine . If it ran with a phenom it will run with the FX

    That's what I was hoping, but my phenom runs at 95w, the 8320 runs at 125w
  6. Well, if you think it should be able to handle my rig plus the new cpu I'll be picking it up today.
