Do you really need a branded psu to run gtx 650 ti boost?

My psu was included whe i bought the case i know its a cheap one its 500w tho. Im wondering if i really have to upgrade my psu. Im planning to buy the cooler master g500 80+ bronze psu. But im really on a thight budget i would not like to spend more money than i already did for my gpu. Just wanna hear your opinion

  1. Its not breanding that matters, its manufacturer.

    The problem is reliability and ACTUAL wattage available. I doubt that 500W unit could even deliver 500W.
    A cheap unit is likely to fail and take most of your system with it, a more expensive unit has protections in place to avoid these kinds of issues.

    What are you looking to spend on a PSU?
  2. And Cooler Master is not the best choose when it comes to PSU's anyway.

    Is that so? So to be sure i really have to buy new one then. Could you give me a good 500w psu which would not cost me more than a 100 bucks?
