my current psu is MS Pro 550w but it's ancient and i'm hearing the noise on warmer days i'm planning to buy Cooler Master B600 600watts

if its really old and making noise, its time for a new psu. i would suggest you go with antec, seasonic, or XFX and you can get a good quality 450 or 550 watt psu for under $50. and the 7790 is better.

I will go for GTX560Ti because it's cheaper.
Which one of cheapest ones do you recommend from seasonc, antec or xfx?

where are you buying the graphics card from? and all 3 of those brands are fine, i would go with the 550 watt 80+ bronze from XFX.

How about this one http://www.pik.ba/artikal/10031183/napajanje-xfx-core-e... its probably not your language but you have details on the bottom she's about $50. I'm buying over pik.ba it's like amazon/ebay in my country but it's from companies.

This is PRO edition, there's no 550watt version of this one.

There is a 550watt version of that one and looking at that you choose the gtx 560 ti would you need two power connectors which the 450watt doesn't have.

The guy that's selling it doesn't have 550watt version. Neither does anyone on that website. I tried first with Corsair CX450 but they said it's not being made anymore.
