16 gb ddr3
my power supply is an antec vp600p

  1. 600 good quality is fine
    what psu model is it?
  2. a "600W" PSU can range anything from 'great' to 'basically a paperweight' and means nothing.

    What PSU are we talking about specifically?

  5. It is not a good quality unit, I will recommend you get a new one. Corsair CX650/CX650M is good budget choice, TXM is better. If you can spend more, get Corsair RMx, Seasonic Focus+ or EVGA Supernova G2/G3.
  6. That's not a completely horrible PSU.... but I wouldn't look to stress it too much.

    Considering you're looking at about ~350W max load.... I wouldn't look to push too much as far as an OC goes.

    You'd *probably* be fine..... but age and how much the PSU has degraded over time will play a big factor.

    IF you want (or need) to replace it, the SeaSonic Focus+ 550W is one of the best units out there and, in the US at least, can be had for <$55 after MIR.

    If light OCing and psu is quite new, you can use it for now, but plan to get 550+ good quality if you plan to OC heavily.
