I am building a new machine that I plan to dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu. I purchased a Corsair CX600 as my power supply and I am starting to wonder if that will be enough.
My Build (So Far):
Case: Corsair Carbide Series Black 400R
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H
Processor: Intel Core i7 3770K
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (2 x 8GB)
Windows SSD: Crucial m4 256GB
Ubuntu SSD: OCZ 128GB Vertex 4 Series
Data HHD: Western Digital 1TB Black
Heat Sync: Cool Master 212 Evo
Power: Corsair CX600
At the moment, I am going to use the motherboard graphics, so no video card. I do plan to add a mid-level video card in a few months. Do you think the CX600 is enough power for this system?
Yes it is. More than enough. Depending on what card your adding it should also be enough for a mid level card as well. Id say maybe a 660 ti or a 7850 or 7870 (maybe even a 670 if you wanna push it). You would have to put it all into a wattage calculator though. You can find one here.
