Hey guys, this is my first time building a gaming pc for about $400 and I would like to know what PSU would be best with my setup. Prefer something silent and wont make too much noise. Thank you.

SETUP

Mobo - Biostar 880Gz Micro ATX
GPU - NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965 B.E.
Case - Gigabyte GZ-X7
Ram - G.Skill Ripjaws (2x4) 1600MHz
HDD- Going to use the one from my current computer

PSU - ?? I was thinking maybe a Corsair TX650

ANY SUGGESTIONS ?

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 450 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 400 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 22 Amps or greater and that has at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most critical factor.

The Corsair TX Series TX650 (SKU# 75-001315 / CP-9020038), with its maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 54 Amps and with two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with a single GeForce GTX 450 graphics card.

Other suggestions:

650 is wayy to much. You will do fine with 430 to 550 Watts.
