Power consumption of build? Tags: New Build Power Consumption Systems Last response: March 4, 2013 8:03 AM in Systems Share shadowhuntur March 4, 2013 7:32:25 AM Hello all, I'm upgrading my current rig with the sole intention for running Crysis 3 at decent frames on high. Question is: I have a 500W Corsair CX500 will this be able to power all the following?? Amd FX-6300 Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Sapphire 7870 2GB 8GB of Corsair ram 128GB SSD and a generic CD Drive. I know the processor can take 227W's and the GPU will be around 190W's, this doesn't leave me much head room, but I can't really afford to get a new power supply. Any feedback will be appreciated, thanks.
