  1. full rig please? As long as your GPU is not 1080ti or multiple GPU, you will be fine. CX550M is very reliable.

  2. System specs?

    The CX550M is still in the budget category, but better than the VS and better than the old CX series.

  3. You can overclock with any power supply as long as you still have less of a power draw than the PSU can put out.
    I try to get a PSU so the full system power draw is not over 75% of the power supply.
