Hi, I am choosing new power supply unit for my PC:
mobo - Intel P55KG
processor - Intel Core i7-920 + Zalmann CNPS7000-CU
graphics - Gigabyte GV-R787OC-2GB
RAM - Kingston HyperX DDR3 3GB 2GHz
audio - Creative X-Fi Xtreme Music
SSD - OCZ Vertex 3 Series 120GB
HDD - 500 GB Western Digital
and two 100m vents

I can't decide between:
Fractal Design Integra R2 650W 80PLUS Bronze
or
Fortron RAIDER S 650W 80PLUS SILVER
or do you have any other suggestions? Its the power for the computer set correctly calculated or do I need more or its too much power? I got old FSP Bluestorm II 400W and its not sufficient (especially because of the video card).

Conditions are - quality, enough power, 2x 6+2 Pin PCI-e (because of the video card), possibility to overclock the video card to the max without destroying my pc and not the Corsair which you will for sure suggest me, because they don't have it in the shop, where I want to buy the PSU.

I would appreciate some help. Many thanks in advance.

From what I could find out (and I"m no expert), those seem barely OK (Tier 4), but you really should stick with Antec, Corsiar, Seasonic, Enermax, certain OCZ and Cooler Masters (depending). I don't know where that older link is dividing PSUs into five tiers, but I saved a copy in a Word file for myself. Perhaps someone else can link to it.

Thanks everyone for suggestions, the XFX looks great. Oi oi: you're right with the card, i already has it and the free games were nice surprise for me (it was not in the info where i was buying it), now i really cant wait for trying it out. :D  I just want to know, what other people think and what would they choose. I made many times decisions that ended bad and so i am asking someone with more experiences. Anyway, thanks for help and i would welcome more suggestions.
