I'm building my first PC in 2 weeks times and I don't know what PSU to get. I will be running a gtx 780, however I live in New Zealand and the prices of PSU's over here are really expensive:

I was looking at:

-Antec 750W EarthWatts Green
-Corsair TX750
-CoolerMaster Silent Pro M 600w
-Corsair TX650
-Corsair HX620w

Are any of these PSU's any good? I don't want to buy something really cheap that will be useless so if you guys have any other suggestions that would be great. I will spend more if I have to.

Cheers

A corsair 650tx should be more than enough. If you want to "future proof" though I would get the 750tx

For a system using a single GeForce GTX 780 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 600 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 42 Amps or greater and that has at least one 6-pin and one 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most critical factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.
