So i battled the cpu pick for months and just jumped the gun on an i5 4590. My question is i plan to upgrade my gpu from an hd 7950 boost to a r9 290x, wondering if my cpu will be good with this. My psu "s 600 w evga 80 plus. Cooler master and all other psu calculators recommend at least 500." Im really hoping to get at least 3 years out of this pc and def hoping to keep "the fps and graphics as good as the games optimization allow. " its my first build and im a hardcore gamer converting to pc again but havent owned a pc since ps3 came out . Sorry for grammar or whatever my smartphone sucks

I suggest a different PSU before getting a new gpu.

I know psu is very important so i get nervous about whats good. Example CX was a hot seller now they are the plague lol
