asus essentio CM6830-07

i am looking at buying the asus essentio CM6830-07 with 8gb RAM 1TB HDD. i am also going to be putting a Geforce GTX 670 in it, but i cant seem to find what PSU it contains, which is very important because i wont know if i need to upgrade. Also is the cooling and ventilation system sufficient for it?

Comes with a 350, so you'll need to upgrade. I generally suggest to overshoot by at least 50-75% over "required" power for the system to allow for expansion and so that it's not running at peak power all the time.

Also it comes from the factory with up to a 640, so a 670 should be alright.

I would nudge you towards between a 500 and 750, closer towards the middle, I think there's some 600 watt ones.

This also has modular cables, so you only have to plug in what you need to the power supply, reduces clutter in a smaller case.
