I am building a new gaming PC...
Components:
-Processor: Intel i5 4440 3.1GHz Haswell
-Graphics card: NVidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB
-RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz 1x8
-Motherboard: Asrock s1150 H81-DGS
-Hard disk: 500GB
I am looking for power but I am not sure do I need 500W for this components or I can take 420W.
Can you help and explain me what to choose?

Thank you. Leon.

I was also looking for SSD instead of HD cuz I read that if u have one you will load games and other faster but I don't does it have any impact on FPS and performace in games. Is it true?

Thank you, I will search a little bit more to be more sure so maybe I'll be able to save 30$ with 420W. :D

Rosewill is a decent PSU brand.

An SSD will not increase fps in games but will increase t speed of almost everything else massively - a good ssd, for example a Samsung 840 EVO, will be up to 20x as fast as yo HD, so u'll get into Windows super quick, games will load in seconds etc

It will be faster but i rather buy one later and spend the saved money on something else
Rosewills are good but i still do not prefer buying psu's from them
