Best Power Supply?

Can someone please tell me what a good wattage power supply would be for this setup:

Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
EVGA GeForce GTX670 FTW
Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer

The case also comes with 4 fans in it. Sorry if I am being too specific or anything but I'm not really sure about what I need when it comes to a PSU.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Corsair TX 650 V2
    Corsair HX 650
    XFX 550W
    XFX 650W
  2. Any 500 watt unit will have ample supply for that. My own machine is almost exactly the same, and pulls at max about 300 watts from the wall on an 85% efficient power supply, so that needs about 255 watts to the machine side if the PSU. Unless you plan on going SLI in the future then you may want to think about something like a 650.

    Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) = 170
    Minimum System Power Requirement (W) = 500

    So 500W for the single card set up and 670 for an SLI setup

    If overclocking both GPU and CPU, I'd go 650 for single card and 850 for SLI

    If ya haven't bought the case yet, I'd consider this combo ... case is outstanding
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.1278880

    $280 MSRP - $30 new egg discount - $20 combo discount - $30 MIR - $20 off w/ promo code EMCXSXL29, ends 4/15 = $180

    The Corsair X series and Seasonic X series is a step up .... Comparable models to the TX series would be the Silverstone, Cougar, NZXT Hale, XFX Core Edition, Antec HCG series .... See jonnyguru.com for reviews.

    You can get that and when you have enough money in the future you can get another 670 and SLI that.
  5. I would go with a Seasonic 620w modular unit from Newegg.com. Cheap for what you get. Super durable too.
  6. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207013 < Made by Seasonic

    $69.00 - $10.00 Rebate = $59.00 = Great deal if you run single GPU setup.

  7. The Seasonic X series is the best in the market according to JonnyGuru.com, If you can afford it the Corsair PSU's are also stellar.
  8. Corsairs good PSUs are made by Seasonic. There are some pretty good deals on both brands at Newegg.com right now. I would browse a bit. Also, they have a psu wattage calculator on their site.

    Thanks, that was actually the EXACT same case I was looking at & it is a good deal. Thank you everyone for your help.
