PSU Problems

I am planning to upgrade my PC, but I am not sure if my PSU is enought for the upgrade, pls advice :D

Current specs:
MB: MSI Z68A-GD65
CPU: i5 2400 (no oc)
CPU cooler: Corsair H60
HDD: 2 WD Blue 500GB HDD @7200rpm
GPU: GTX 550 Ti
RAM: 2 sticks of Corsair 1600Mhz RAM
PSU: Corsair CX600
FAN: 4 x 120mm Fans @1200rpm
DVD Drive: 1x ASUS DVD Drive

I am going to sell my 550Ti and change it to Gigabyte GTX670 OC Windforce version.
But i am not sure if my PSU can run this. Many Thx! :bounce:


EDIT: If I will do a slight more OC to the Gigabyte GTX670 OC Windforce, will the PSU be able to hold up?

  1. It should be okay
  2. it should be fine 600 is enough for that rig and also the psu is of amazing quality so you shouldn't have any problems
  3. Best answer
    A system with a single GTX 670 OC Windforce requires a 550W PSU with at least 36A on the 12v rails and one 75W 6-pin PCIe power connector and one 150W 8-pin PCIe power connector. The Corsair CX600 has 40A on the 12V rail and two 150W 6+2 Pin PCIe power connectors and is sufficient for your build and some GPU overclocking.
