Hello guys, Im really lost on what PSU should I pick. Since im not from USA or so I got few options. My system config is:
FX-6300
Gtx 760 Zotac
MB GigaByte GA-970A-D3P
2x Corsair (4gb)
2x Corsair coolers

Thats all, non overclock or sli. Just to proper supply this and not burst into fire ;P.
Mine options on PSU are:
Zalman 600W Power Supply ZM600-LX
Thermaltake ATX TR2 600W TR-600
C3 Tech ATX 500W 20+4P - DSAII-500RVEII
Raidmax 500W Real 80 PLUS Bronze - RX-500AF
3R System ATX 500W AK500-80
Corsair ATX 550W VS550 Power Supply - CP-9020050-WW 220V

I also got a option to get a Corsair CX-500W - CP-9020047-WW but it comes with no cables, and Im noob about what I need to get.
Help me power on my pc pls.
Thx all!

Corsair CX 500 would be great. But Corsair VS 550 works too :)

Go for a corsair cx 500 watt modular edition.
Attach only the cables you need. It will be quite easy for you.
Thermaltake is also a good option.

Gtx760 minimum recommendation is 500 watts. So you psu less than 550 isn't an option.
check out this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or corsair gs600 will be enough for you :D

I personally would buy a PSU with no cables as an inexperienced builder, I'd buy any 500w + PSU made by either Corsair or XFX which has a bronze+ rating.
Where are you from btw as I may be able to help you with some websites to look on? :)

Although personally I would go for a 600w+ PSU as they generally last a long time which would leave you space for future upgrades!

Actually, I dont plan any further upgrade. Buying this specs specially to not upgrade for the next 2 years at least.

The main problem is, even I had the cables, I feel like since 500W is the power requeriments for the gtx 760 I prob am going for the 550W corsair.
