Hello,

1st of all. my system

Intel® Core™ i7-4770K Processor (i want to OC it let's say 4.5/5Ghz Max)
CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H LGA 1150 Motherboard
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600 CL9 V1.5 Dual Channel

Samsung SSD 840 PRO 128 GB
Western Digital - Caviar Black WD1002FAEX (2X1TB) 64MB Cache Configured RAID-0

ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II 2GB GDDR5 (i want to OC it too if possible)
Asus MX279H 27 inch AH-IPS 5MS Frameless LED Monitor
Microsoft LifeCam Cinema H5D-00004 Webcam & Microphone

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Full Tower Case

Please note: i may add two more HDD because i am using this PC for LAB "Virtual Machines stuff" plus external HDD & Flash Memory.

2nd my PSU options:

My Current Power Supply
"XFX ProSeries XXX Edition 550W PSU (Bronze)"


IF NOT sufficient please help me with the best one for my new system "i am on limited budget so appreciate the only needed one" i know the higher the best.

Bronze Certified Options in my country:
CORSAIR CX600M Bronze 600w 80 PLUS PSU (103$)
SeaSonic M12II Bronze 620W 80 PLUS PSU (100$)
SeaSonic M12II Bronze 750W 80 PLUS PSU (122$)
CORSAIR CX750M 80 PLUS Bronze Modular (125$)

Gold Certified Options in my country:
Seasonic X Series 760W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified (166$)
Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1050W 80 Plus Gold (185$)
CORSAIR AX850 80 PLUS Gold PSU (185$)
Seasonic X Series 850W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified PSU (186$)

is it worth buy gold one with extra 50$ ? i am on limited budget but i can wait more and get the gold one if worth it :\

Best solution

I would think 650W is enough. If you really WANTED to upgrade the PSU, I'd go with the Corsair CX750M of those options, given your limited budget.

XFX ProSeries XXX Edition 650W is perfectly sufficient for that spec. Better don't waste $$ :no:
