have a hp pavilion p71157cb with an amd quad core. Currently have amd radeon 7750. I decided I will upgrade my power supply since I plan on getting the r9270x. Is this psu any good and will it work for what I am planning? Thanks guys.

I wouldn't go under 610w for a power supply nowadays, but that's just me. 500W is pretty low.

Google "coolmax power supply reliability."

500W is plenty for a 270X as long as it's a quality unit. I don't know enough about the one you linked to say one way or the other though.

As for watts, i don't think you need all that much at all these days.

One thing about HP is that your case may not fit a full sized PSU or a large graphics card. You might have to get a new case.
