Hello guys, my psu has just died after experiencing 2 outages at once, so I'm looking for a new one. My specs are

case: HAF 922
Motherboard: Asus H87 plus
CPU: i5 4570
GPU: Gigabyte 660 windforce
RAM: G skill 2X4GB 12800 CL9
HDD: 6X assorted sizes of Western Digital and maybe an SSD in the future
Optical Drive: LG cheap drive to burn

Please recommend me a wattage, as low as possible but stable please.

Thanks!

Hi - That sys will run on a decent 430w PSU as long as it has at least 1 6pin pcie connector.
If you want xtra headroom you can get a unit with more power as it won't do any harm to
anything except your wallet in a higher upfront cost.

500Watt would be enough for that so a 650W would be more than enough.

A 650 Watt PSU is more than enough, though if you're thinking about upgrading in the future, it may be a smart choice to go with one. I would say around 500-550 Watts would do great with this build itself.

I would just stick to name brands EVGA, Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic. I think general consensus is the XFX and Seasonic are highest quality, but I'm sure they prob the highest priced as well.
