PSU Recommendations? Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: December 27, 2012 12:57 AM in Components Share ckstuntman December 26, 2012 11:47:13 PM Hello, I need a new PSU for my computer since my last one died on me. I'm also looking to upgrade my old cpu to a phenom x4 or x6, so I may need some room for power. My specs: M2N68-LA motherboard AMD Athlon II X2 240 4 GB RAM Diamond Radeon HD 6670 2GB GDDR3 I was thinking of getting the CX-500 or CX-600 but I see mixed reviews on it.
