Hi,

I am making a new build today and I just wanted to confirm the power supply will be good enough.

CPU: AMD FX8350
Motherboard: ASUS M5A99X EVO R2 AM3+
GPU: Asus Radeon 7870GHZ edition


PSU(s) in mind:

Corsair CX500M - $70
Corsair CX600M - $80


Location: Canada.

Thanks for your input!

Yes it will be fine Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

Radeon HD 7870 - On your average system the cards require you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit as minimum and 700 Watt if you go with two cards in Crossfire mode. http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/gigabyte_radeon_hd...
