I have a Digital storm computer already but just bought the LYNX Ultimate but have not received it yet. My question is that my old DS computer has the Corsair 750 power supply and the Lynx has DS 600 power supply. Is it easy and or worth it tho swap out my old power supply with the new one?

Your power supply is well on its way to MTTF - mean time to failure. You don't need any extra power for the Lynx with its stock config. Only if you wanted to step up the GPU to a 3070 would it matter very much. Changing the PSU seems like a lot of work for not much advantage IMHO.

I agree with Cretae. That old psu is better where it is. If you ever upgrade hardware that requires a more powerful psu then you can get a new one to fit your new needs.
