Does a 500W Intex Spider power supply is enough for an AMD FX 6350 and a gtx 560TI/650TI/660/670?

I'm not sure I would trust an 'Intex Spider' to power a flashlight. Get something decent. Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ, Antec or the high efficiency Rosewill units.

That one I'd trust to recharge some AA batteries. But only one at a time.

As anort3 said before...get a good one.

It's better than the first one but still not what I would call a quality unit.

It's a decent unit. The best you have listed so far. It's plenty of power for your computer.

So, witch one is better Cooler Master B600 600W(not modular) or Thermaltake Smart SE 530W (modular)?
It has to power an gtx660.
They both have 2 x PCI Express 6+2 pin, witch is required to power the gpu, right?

As a case i'm going with a middletower Zalman Z9 U3.

Neither. Thermaltake and Coolermaster are brands to avoid when it comes to power supplies. There are a few good higher end models but those are not among them.

The Corsair is good and the Sirtec is OK.

I would go with the VS. The regular CX series ( not the CXM ) uses cheap Chinese made capacitors. It's still a good unit but they can die when stressed.

Glad to help! :)
