600W should be good provided its a decent one.

What is the model? I didn't see your previous post.

Yea, there will be a sticker on the side of the PSU with the manufacturer and other details.

You can open the side plate and see. A good Bronze certified PSU can run the GTX 670 config pretty well. GTX 670 is that damn efficient

A good 600 watts PSU will be adequate.

There is no software that will identify the PSU in a computer. I was looking for one myself.

I do not have data on AMC power supplies.

I normally recommend Corsair, Seasonic, or Antec PSU.

I tried to search on google but did not readily find data on AMC PSUs. This doesn't mean that they are bad, but it doesn't mean that they are good either.

See if you can find some reviews and customer feedback on AMC PSUs used in desktop applications.

I know that Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, 600 watts PSUs will work in your application.

What I can make out on that label says 26 A under +12 V for the 600 W model, that would be low for a 400 W unit, your average 600 W unit should have 45-50 A of capacity on the 12 V rail.

Personally I wouldn't try to run a GTX 570 on it, guru3d testing a GTX 570 system and it was pulling about 370 W from the wall, with inefficiencies that is probably only about 320 W from the PSU, most of that is going to be from the 12 V rail since that is what feeds the CPU and GPU so you would need around 26.6 A from the 12 V rail at peak which is technically over the limit at peak load and would be pushing the ratings at normal levels.

I would swap it out for a new unit.

Ditto on the PSU google fail. Do you feel lucky? You can get serveral 600 watters at newegg for $60 (Corsair or PC Power and Cooling). Good luck !!

Look for sales and promos on Newegg. Recently I bought an Antec 650 watts PSU for $30 after rebate.

I think you probably get the idea now, ill throw my vote in anyway....... Change the PSU!

That will be an excellent system with the upgrades! You dont want that power supply ruining it all for you!
