    is my power supply/motherboard sufficient?

      hello,

      i am here to ask a newbie question. i may consider buying an i7-990X in the future, and was wondering if i would need to buy a new PSU (or even a new motherboard) to support the new processor. these are my current computer specifications:

       

      Corsair GS600 PSU (600W)

      typical 1TB SATA hard drive

      7GB DDR3 SDRAM Dual channel

      ATI Radeon HD 5770 (http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/ati-radeon-hd-5000/hd-5770/Pages/ati-radeon-hd-5770-overview.aspx#3)

      i5-650 processor

       

      according to CPU-Z, this is the info about my motherboard:

      so can i even upgrade to an i7-990X with this motherboard?

      if i am missing anything, please ask.

      thanks in advance!
