This is my build and I was wondering what PSU I would need to run this build safley with parts ofverclocked?
CPU AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core £107.99
CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing £23.98
Motherboard Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ £59.00
Storage Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM £41.99
Video Card MSI Radeon R9 280X 3GB £225.60

I was looking at getting the Corsair 600W ATX12V for £55 but didn't know if it was capable, any other 650W+ PSU of good quality on a budget available in the UK at the moment?

If you are not going to Overclock a 600W 80+ PSU is very adequate,
however if you plan on overclocking you should get nothing less than 650W 80+ for some 4.5GHz Oc´s on the CPU and a 700W 80+ for anything higher.
It is slight overkill, but you want to be sure that the PSU won´t fail because you overloaded the voltage.
