psu power and the fx-9590

Discussion created by hardcoregames™ on Nov 12, 2014

I noticed my motherboard can support the FX-9590 which wants 220W

I am looking at using dual HD 6970s which will load my PSU rather nicely

so now I am looking at my CPU power, and with yet another power pig, I am wondering of my TX850V2 is going to have a fit

I have an 8-pin connector with lot of power to the board but 220W for a CPU is definitely a load.

I more inclined to get a FX-6300 which is lower cost and less of a power pig
