How many watt PSU for my build??

Hi guys,

I am slowly piecing together my first build below (prices after rebates):

CPU: $180 - 17 4770k
GPU: $266 - PNY 2gb 770 GTX
Mobo: $80 - Asus Z87-A

Ram: $50-60 - 2x4GB G.Skill ares,sniper, or ripjaw
HDD: 120GB HyperX 3K + WD Red
PSU: ??
Case: ??
CPU Cooler: ??
DIsplay: 24" 1080p IPS

I used the extreme calculator and wattage conservatively was recommended 450W. I don't really plan to overclock, as I don't think I'll need to with what I do, and I also don't know how... Can anyone recommend a PSU in the $40-$75 range?

Another question is will I need a CPU cooler? I did some research here and the Hyper 212 evo and Noctua NH-d14 are recommended a lot... the hyper 212 evo I think I saw for $35.

  1. Best answer
    Corsair CX430, Corsair VS 450, or if Seasonic 500 fits in the budget
  2. Is the Corsair CX series CX500 500W good? It is 29.99 after mail-in-rebate and no tax and free s&h at newegg:
  3. CX500 will be good if your getting it at discount. If the price difference is not much go for seasonic, corsair is also fair.
