Hello. I recently brought a system and i was just double checking if my power supply is ok. Build: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/gsz27h Specs if your lazy. I7-4790k GTX 970

I have brought a Corsair CX500w

Thanks

To be honest its not a great psu but it should be enough to power your system.

Thanks. Im not planning on overclocking at all. I also dont think the games i play will use the gpu at max. Thanks again.

I mean it will power it, but you put a $50 power supply in a computer with an i7 an a 970. That makes no sense to me.

It doesn't have stellar performance but itll work.

If you could return that PSU and pay the difference, this would be a much mroe solid choice for your build : http://pcpartpicker.com/product/3hkwrH/corsair-power-supply-cp9020102na

It's enough wattage, but it's not a great PSU.

It is a bit confusing.
