Motherboard - Asus M5A97 R2.0 AMD 970

RAM - G.SKILL Ares 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz

Chasis - Corsair Carbide Series 200R Compact ATX Case

GPU - Gigabyte GV-R927XOC-2GD Overclocked R9 270X

Hard Drive - Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200Rpm

SSD - Crucial 120GB Solid State Drive

I just want to know what Power Supply would be most suitable for this build, I won't be overclocking at all, but might in the future

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Power Supply: XFX 550W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ NCIX US)
Total: $49.99
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

That xfx would do you nicely unless you want to xfire or upgrade to a 280x or 290.

Oh and I forgot to mention that I live in New Zealand and that power supply isn't in nz, can u think of anything else? Just go to PCpartpicker and change to new zealand (in country) and choose one please, thanks :)
