  1. That system would run fine on a quality 500watt PSU so the TX650 is plenty. PSU calculator http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
  2. on cyberpower pc there is a meter that shows you how much wattage your pc will be using and it tells me 600W. are you sure they are wrong?

    Yes! The calculator I linked to is the most accurate I have come across. Here is a link to few actual power consumption benchmarks it is total system power http://www.anandtech.com/show/4061/amds-radeon-hd-6970-radeon-hd-6950/24
  4. Also, the monitor's wattage does not count against you. That wattage comes straight from the wall, not your PSU

    I get 326watts plugging it into the calculator (replacing your cooling with a different one) at 100% tdp.
