Default vs 650 corsair enough...

hye..

i recently upgrade my rig to intel i7 3770 and order h77 asus mobo .. as i was on a tight budget i bought a corsair vs 650 which is currently having 50 amps which is enough but this psu is not certified from corsair so iam worried to complete my rig is there any chance.. of damage to cpu or motherboard ... should i continue with this or go resale it and buy a tx650 from corsair .. iam using 500 gb hd, ati 5750 , hyper tx3 , dvdrw and a usb card reader.. if upgraded my graphics card to 670 will this psu be enough ....

I am not familiar with that particular model of corsair PSU, but IMO any corsair 650w that is relatively new will have no issues with a 3770 and gtx670.

Its a barebones run of the mill PSU made by Corsair but you should be fine as your system isn't pushing that much for power.
