Power Supply Suggestions/Corsairs PSU's

So after a bit of research I decided that I'm going to buy a new Sapphire Radeon 7850 2GB GPU,but I can't use it because of my 400w power supply,the problem is that I don't know anything about PSU's ,here on these forums somebody suggested this PSU instead http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 but I'm not sure if I need a 550w power supply or 500w suppy.
Here are rest of my specs:
Intel Core i3CPU 530@ 2.93Ghz
4GB of Ram
Asus P7P55D Motherboard
My question is- will 500w be enough for my setup and is the Corsair PSU decent ,if not could you please give me any other suggestion on a psu that is in the same price range or even a bit cheaper.
Thanks.

  2. Best answer
    That psu is good enough to run your system with a 7850.
  3. I'd say 500W is a good amount for that build, I don't know about the new CX Bronze series but last time I was here people would get Corsair TX as its built by Seasonic.
  4. this is the list for psu provided by amd for this card http://support.amd.com/us/certified/power-supplies/Pages/listing.aspx
  5. So the PSU that I linked to should be good enough?The model that is?
    Thanks.

    It depends on what else is in your system. The list provided by AMD above recommends a 600 watt PSU from Corsair as the smallest recommended PSU.

    YMMV.

  11. Um no for the CX series it says get at least the 750W one...

    I would get this personally: TX650 V2
    or TX 750 if you wanna get crossfire
