Your rig only consumes around 300-400w of power, the CX600 is MORE than enough.

I'm starting to agree with the technician, it may be more of a driver issue. Are you hearing any buzzing from the rig? Or is it just through your speakers whenever you get these freezes?

That PSU is excellent. Gives out clean, reliable power and like mocchan said, it only consumes 300-400W of power. I'd say, go for it.
