  1. Is that what you currently have or are you looking to buy a new PSU? If it is what you have now, it is ok. If buying new, I would step up to a 750w and giver yourself more headroom.

    So Id say yea ... but only if not overclocking. The CX or "Builder series" is Corsair's budget line where they compete to sell to system builders on a price basis. The TX650 would be what Id recommend as a minimum at $20 more.

    By headroom you mostly mean headroom for ocing right but if im not gonna oc is the system gonna be fine in full load!
  5. I have never felt comfortable running right at the minimum requirement. A TX 650 isn't a bad suggestion either.
  6. you actually dont really need 750w but 650 is enough!
