Hey guys I'm REALLY new to building my own pc. I'm not sure what PSU wattage my system would require. Here's my proposed build:

Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 Motherboard

Graphics card: EXDISPLAY Gigabyte GTX 660 OC 2GB GDDR5 Dual DVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Graphics Card

Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz XMS3 Memory)

Power supply: X-Power 700W PSU (any similarly priced, better and reliable suggestions would be highly appreciated I want to keep the price of the power supply around £40 or lower). I'm not sure if I really need a 700W supply.

Samsung SH-224BB SATA DVD Write Optical Drive

Case: CiT Vantage Gaming Case Black HD Audio Black Interior 4 Fans Card Reader No PSU

Hard drive: WD 1TB Green Desktop Drive (not 100% sure)

As stated I want to keep the cost of the power supply below £40 but I want it to be reliable and also compatible with my system of course. Here's another power supply I was considering: Powercool 650W 80plus Certified Efficiency PSU - 4x SATA 2x PCI-E.


Thanks

a corsair CX500 would be enough and for the processor,get the fx-6300 instead of x4 965.A 660 requires 450W psu though,CX500W to be future-proofed

Don't buy the 700w you mentioned it's not a reliable brand.

CX500W it is! Thanks. The fx-6300 is a bit out of budget for me though :(  . But thanks none the less. The processor I'm suggesting wouldn't bottleneck the GTX 660 would it?
