Ok so I am planning to upgrade my PC to this:

MAXIMUS VII HERO
i7-4790k
Gigabyte R9 270X
8GB Corsair 1600MHz Ram
600WATT Corsair CX-600
1 TB Caviar Black
NZXT Kraken x31
Rosewill Blackhawk

So will the PSU be enough for the build? I heard some people saying the CPU at load can max out around 300 WATTS. Thats an insane amount! So I need to know if I should upgrade my PSU. Thanks in advance!

The CX 600 isn't Haswell compatible and it's a poorly made power supply with cheap capacitors.

Get a high quality Seasonic at a great price.
