Your power supply:
"Across ATX-600W Power Supply:
ATX 12V 1.3 version, rated 230W Max (350W)Built-in SATA Power connector EMI/RFI:FCC part 15 Class B, EN55022 Class B Complies with Intel ATX Ver.2.03 Passive power factor correction Ultra Low acoustic noise (MTBF>50,000 hours at room temp Hormonics: IEC61000-3-2 class D Surge: IEC61000-4-5 ESD: IEC61000-4-2 Dimension: 150*86*140mm(W*H*L) Certificate: CE, RoHS, etc. "

When you read the specs is says "rated 230W Max" so it is NOT a 600watt power supply like the name implies but a 230Watt at BEST and probably not that at all.
They do not list the individual amperages on the different voltage rails but they are probably just as dismal.
The short answer is that NO, you cannot use your current power supply on your new build. Your friend was smart and purchased a quality power supply that actually has at LEAST TWICE the usable power that your power supply does and includes a 3year warranty on it. The Corsair CX430 has a full rating of 430Watts Max and a 12Volt rail that can deliver 32Amps (32A x 12V = 384Watts just for the CPU and graphics card, the primary power draw components) is a power supply you can really use into the future. Please see that the current price with rebate is on par with what your friend purchased:

Most Intel boxed CPU's (except K series) come with the heat sink/fan set up in the box.
There should be decent 24" monitors probably by Acer that should fit your needs for +/- $100.
Google the different features of both chipsets to make your decision on which to go with.
There is little difference between most of the better brands of motherboards within a price range so look for the features you will need (graphics slot(s), USB ports, onboard sound, SATA ports, etc) and look at the online reviews on your top two or three candidates.

There are numerous specs to consider when choosing a power supply. Wattage is only one of them & it's not necessarily the most important.

I'm confused about your question regarding CPUs. To upgrade from an AMD A6-3500 to an Intel Pentium G4560, you will need a different motherboard plus Windows will have to be reinstalled.

Neither the Graphics nor the processor draws that much power so if it is a good quality power supply you should be fine. If you own it already and it works, it will probably still work assuming that it has all of the correct connectors that your new motherboard and any other hardware requires. As mentioned, you will need a new motherboard and at least probably different RAM as well, possibly other components to change the processor from AMD to Intel. As mentioned you will need to reinstall Windows when you try to use a different motherboard with the hard drive. If you would like a recommendation for a power supply or what we feel is the minimum specs you should look for in one, let us know. If you would like us to review your new hardware selections, please list them, your current hardware, your budget, your uses of the machine, and your expectations for it afterwards.

actually im noob when it comes to this. sorry i forgot to mention my motherboard which is gigabyte GA-A55M-DS2. i read specs from other people using g4560 with a mobo msi H110 Lga 1151 and asus B150 PRO GAMING D3, or shud i go for B250 which most of the people use but cost extra money. if i get 1 among those 3 together with a cpu g4560 and a gtx 1050 or 1050ti, can i still use my old Across atx-600watts psu?

i also wonder why less watts psu nowaday cost more money. my old Across ATX-600W psu which cost only for 10$ while a my friend has a corsair vs450 450watts psu that cost 20$

A $10 PSU?

That won't do for any modern PC build, you need to add the cost of a new, quality brand PSU to your budget.

I can't even find any info on the Across brand, that speaks volumes about it's poor quality.

Another note: Cheap power supplies have been known to fail without warning taking out vital components like motherboards, CPU's, and graphics cards. Do not mess around with cheap power supplies, it may cost you much more in the long run.
