Build PSU

hey i have a cx 600 80 plus bronze and i want to upgrade my cpu to an 8350 or 8320. my gpu is an HIS 7870 would i exceed the wattage with the 8 core? if you need more info let ne know thanks in advance

You should be just fine.

thanks toast cant wait to upgrade!

I don't see why people recommend over a 650w PSU, it can handle a 8350 and a 7970 which are pretty power hungry compared to the intel and nvidia alternative

I've got a 630W thats not even Bronze (its an oldie), running relatively close to the same thing (plus a billion other things) without issue. Pulls about 60-70% at peak (I'm pushing my setup basically to the limit sadly).
