I want to build a new system with the following specs:
Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3R
Intel Core i5-750
4GB Corsair DDR3
HFX Radeon HD5770
1TB WD hard-drive

I need a psu, but i'm on a tight budget, aprox. 50 UK pounds. What sorts of brands should I be looking at and what sort of power do I need? Is 550W enough, because I found a nice OCZ fatal1ty 550W at 53 pounds. Will it do for my system?

OCZ 500W Mod XStream Pro PSU - 2x PCI-E 6x SATA is £56.50

its a bit over but its a very good one also Corsair

450W VX Series PSU - ATX12V v2.2 is another good one

that off ebuyer + u can get free Delivery and if your luck it will come next day :)

I won't want to do crossfire in the near future, so this should be enough for me.
