Best and Cheapest PSU for FX-8350 and XFX HD 7870 2GB

Hi everyone,
I am building a new rig for gaming and i have decided to have the following components in this build:
AMD FX-8350
MSI 990FXA-GD65V2
XFX DD HD 7870 2GB
1TB SATA HDD

I might overclock this CPU and the GPU a bit. I am also on a budget.

What is the best and the cheapest PSU recommended for this build? I can spend about $30-$40 on the PSU

Any help is appreciated :)

  1. Corsair CX500 PSU

    Has a $10 off instant rebate, and also a $20 mail in rebate.

    Brings the price down to $29 with all the rebates, you can't beat Corsair quality at that price
  2. xfx pro 550w core edition or the Sea Sonic S12II-620 Bronze. If you go for corsair get the cx600, but I highly recommend the first two.

    ^I was considering the same PSU. Are you sure this PSU will support the XFX Radeon HD 7870 2GB?

    ^I like those but they are way out of the budget :(
  4. Yes the CX 500 will support it, I have the CX 500 in my PC, with a HD 7870 that I have.

    Yes, that GPU (HD7870)will only pull about 285 watts under full load , leaving plenty of power for your system.So feel assured the CX500 is capable.
  6. Thanks for the reply, although you guys replied a bit late.
    I went with this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152028 will this one support? its 530W
  7. Not nearly as good as the CX500.

    Does only xfx hd 7870 can be paired with cx 430 ? As i have core i3 3220.
