Please suggest a good PSU

Hi everyone,

I am in search of a good psu for my gaming rig.
Location: US
Specs
CPU: i5 4670
GPU: evga/msi TF nvidia gtx 770
Case: Corsair 200r (Would you suggest any other case in this price range?)
As, I won't be overclocking and this would be a single gpu setup I was wondering if I can go with a Seasonic m12ii 520W or do I need a 620W model?
Is there any other psu of same quality but cheaper than these models?

Thanks

  1. Use the Seasonic, Seasonic PSU are fantastic and 520W is enough for your build.
  2. A GeForce GTX 770 needs at least 42 amps on the 12v rail and a 600 watt power supply.

    Great deal on a SEASONIC made 650w , that will easily power your needs

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

    Power Supply: XFX 650W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($59.99 @ NCIX US)
    Total: $59.99
    Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available
  3. I'd go with the 620w for the gtx 770. 520w will probably be enough but if you get 620w it'll likely be more efficient on load, plus there's normally little price difference between the two models.

    Nevermind, go with the psu blackbird suggested, it's a really good deal and based on the psu you picked anyway.

    For the case I would suggest going with the corsair 300r over the 200r, because of the front mesh. Things will get pretty toasty with the little ventilation that the 200r has.

    Thanks Chris!
    Is their any other seasonic model, the modular is bit expensive but is it worth the money?
    And any thoughts on the case?
