Windows 7: Can I run a Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 4GB on a Corsair CX600M?

Can I run a Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 4GB on a Corsair CX600M?

Hi, thanks for taking the time to look at my post.

Can I run a Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 4GB on a Corsair CX600M? I've tried looking this up and trying to find out myself, but itís really confusing and I can't figure it out. I just want to be sure before I go and spend £150 on a graphics card I can't run.

Does my PSU have all the correct connectors for it? I think it might do, but I think they come off the same rail or something and I dont know if thats okay. To be honest, I have very little idea of what I'm talking about here.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Also, here are the links to the manufacturerís websites if it helps.

AMD R9 270X - On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.
AMD R9 270X Crossfire - On your average system the cards require you to have a 700 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

600w is usable but it is always better to have a higher wattage than you need in case you ever upgrade it again. I have checked this by using the following caculator: eXtreme Power Supply Calculator You may get different results if you have components not in your System Specs.
