You can use550w psu. Still it is better be bigger.
Id look 650-750 or even 850. Bigger is better.

Something like this.

Or this.

This is really good and reliable 550w.

This unit gives over 600w to 100%load.

- so the xfx 550w 80 plus bronze won't be good or enough with the oc and extra fans ?!
- does the power supply have to be 80 plus bronze / gold etc cuz there is many power supplys i find doesn't have those only 500w psu / 700w psu etc

Maybe xfx 550w is enough. But there is better ones so whynotuse them?
Corsair new RM is awesome psu. I can only tell what I think is good.
XFX is made by seasonic so It can not be really bad. I justknow that rosewill is really reliable and it will give good enough power.

I would not buy Thermaltake.

Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ, Antec or the higher efficiency Rosewill units. There are other good brands that might be available to you as well. Is there a website we can look at?

80 Plus, 80 Plus Bronze, 80 Plus Silver, 80 Plus Gold and 80 Plus Platinum are measures of efficiency. This rating has noting to do with quality although 80 Plus Silver, Gold and Platinum certified units are usually at least decent.

there is a site but it's not up to date with all products cuz it's not a online store it's just like a data base for available product in like 10/15 trusted stores in egypt

so is it like normal one gives 75% or the power that he should give to u
and the 80 plus gives like 85%+ ?!

No all quality power supplies give the power they are rated at. The 80 Plus just measures the efficiency of how much power they have to take from the wall to deliver that power.
