Hey people,

Just a quick question before I order my new PC.

Will a 600W PSU be enough for this setup :
(The PSU I selected : Corsair Builder Series CX600 Bronze )


CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H
Memory: Corsair Vengeance (16 GB : 2 x 8 GB - DIMM 240-pins - DDR3 - 1600 MHz / PC3-12800)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 (1TB)
Storage(SSD): Crucial m4 (128GB)
Video Card: Sapphire HD7950 Boost (3GB)
Optical Drive: A DVD-RW/DVD+RW Drive


+ 3 120mm case fans.
+ I will most likely overclock the CPU (But no extreme OC's since I'm new to this)

Thanks!

I think for a stock system, maybe that PSU would be fine. However, when you overclock you really want something a little more stout. I would highly recommend a better series or brand PSU. Here is one that is a GREAT deal after $30 instant savings, $20 code, and $20MIR. That's $70 off. It is a little overkill, to be honest, but for the price it is a steal. It will also give you some extra wiggle room.
