I have recently upgraded my GPU to a GTX 980 from a GTX 770. I was planning on giving the 770 to a friend for his new build but he decided to purchase a more powerful card on his own so I have the 770 currently not being used.
With Witcher 3 releasing soon and with the heavy use of Physx in that game I figured I would install the 770 as a dedicated Physx card most for Witcher 3 and Batman: Arkham Knight. Problem is that I have a Corsair CX 600W 80+ Bronze PSU. If I add the 770 the total wattage used is 579 according to PCPartPicker. Is this safe to do? Would a more powerful PSU be required? I'm currently not overclocking my i5 or plan to overclock the GPUs.
