    You will need to list the rest of your components so we can help you with this, you can also check any PSU calculator:

    im looking at getting GeForce GTX550Ti (because of budget)

    and iv got a 1TB HDD.
  5. 450w should be just about right then but as i said try the PSU wattage calculator as it will be more accurate since it takes everything into account(USB Devices, DVD Roms, Fans etc...).

    And btw just an advice i am reading negative reviews and that PSU you mentioned there so if budget allows it you might wanna go with something more reliable like Crosair, Antec, and XFX.

  7. I personally use that for a 8350 \ 7850 combo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207013

    It's not that expensive and reliable :).
