I am ready to upgrade my graphics card to a RX 570. It requires an 8 pin adapter from the power supply unit, my current PSU does not have one, and don't have a high enough wattage power for the graphics card. Any suggestions on a PSU? My PC is a HP Compaq 8000 elite Convertible MiniTower. The PSU is mounted up.

The newer Corsair CX gray series are a nice option for the RX570. I would avoid the the older green CX units, as those have been plagued with problems. The newer CX gray units have better quality parts, and corsair address many of the issues that were in the green units. A 450W PSU is fine, but if you plan on upgrading in the future, a 550W is a better option. The CX PSU's all have an 8 pin adapter for the GPU.
