    its good enough but if your gonna do a lot of overclocking i suggest you get 650+ and if you can post a link to the Tagan 700w so i can check it out cause it cant seem to find that PSU

    Yeah it is am getting the CX 600 my self.
    P.S my PC maxes out at 380 Watts and thats on full load
  21. So the FX6300 And FX 8350 have Similiar TDP's and 7970 recommends a 450Watt so I'm good with only one HDD?
