    I should have thought you'd be fine - the PSU is from a decent brand and has the connectors you'll need (it has 2 x 6+2 pin PCIE connectors and the 770 needs 1 8 pin and 1 6 pin)

    If you've already got the CX600M then there's no need to replace/change it. But if you haven't bought it yet then I would suggest taking the opportunity to find something else which is better quality. Chances are you won't even have to spend more money to do so.

    That corsair should have enough power but remember that PSU's lose a small % of power over time.

    But can I just say that if you do replace it one brand to keep clear of is Thermaltake, their PSU's are sadly rubbish I've had 2 go in just less than 4 years.

    With PSU's it isn't really the name its finding which oem makes which model if that makes sense.
