I recently upgraded my motherboard and cpu. I now have amd a8 6600k 3.9 cpu. And a msi fm2-A75MA-e35 motherboard.

Im currently using a galaxy geforce gt 620 gpu cause I only have stock 300psu. So I want to get a gtx 650 ti. What is the best psu you guys reccomend? Kind of on budget. And on a side note, after upgrading my cpu and mb I had literally no fps gain. Is it cause the gt 620 is that crappy? Thanks

GT 620 is terrible for games. The integrated graphics of your new CPU is actually likely to be better in games. Try removing the GT 620 and using the integrated graphics.

To run the GTX 650 Ti in your system, you need a good quality 400W power supply.

These are my suggestions, from best down to cheapest:
Seasonic G 450
Seasonic S12II 430
Corsair CX430

Get the best of these that you can afford as the extra cost is well worth it.

Corsair make a large range of power supplies.
The CX series use cheap capacitors and may not last as long as a better supply.
They are OK if you are on a tight budget, but not ideal.

The Corsair HX and AX series are much higher quality, but aren't any cheaper than equivalent offerings from Seasonic.

These are the cheapest prices I could find in Australia for these supplies:
Seasonic G 450 $89
Seasonic S12II 430 $75
Corsair CX430 $69

You don't save enough on the Corsair to make it worthwhile over the Seasonic S12II.
The extra $10 for the Seasonic G 450 is maybe harder to justify, but you will save some money on power because of the higher efficiency and the quality of this supply is the best on the market.
