Hello there!

I am currently building a computer and the only thing that stumps me is working out what PSU would be good for my system. My specs are as follows;

CPU:
AMD FX 6350

GPU:
Asus Radeon HD 7850

Motherboard:
Asus sabertooth 990fx r.2

Cooling:
Corsair H100i with 2 SP fans, 1x 120mm fan and a 200mm front fan.

RAM:
8gb Corsair vengeance 1600mhz

Storage:
1x 120gb SSD, 1x1TB Hard drive

DVD/RW drive

Think that covers the internal components. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I cant really afford to spend a fortune on an incorrect psu. Any recommendations (brands etc) would be fantastic!

Many thanks

A CX 600 would work well, or you could spend a little extra and get a TX 650

550 or 600 would be fine.
CPU is 130w
GPU is 150w
Everything else is probably like 30-50w.
