Hello, i am buying a new power supply and need to know if this power supply is powerful enough to power my computer.
The power supply i am looking at is a Corsair 600W CX Builder Series, and these are my components:
Processor: Intel Core i5 2300
Motherboard: Sabertooth P67
Graphics card: HD 4830
Hard Drive: 7200 rpm sata
Ram: 8gb G.Skill RipjawsX
Fans: 6 x 120mm
Will this power supply be good enough to run these components, also will it be able to run the same setup with a HD 7850 graphics card instead?
Finally, i have read the longevity and safety of this PSU has been called into question, why is this? Is the power supply safe to run and will it last a long time and not damage other components when it does die?
