So I'm planning on building my rig and I was wondering which power supply would be best for me to buy a FSP HEXA HE500 Eff>80% 500w or Thermaltake LitePower 500w?

My specs are:
Intel Core i3 3220 3.3ghz
MSI H61M-P31 H61
RipJaws 8gb 1333 (10666CL9D) 2x4
PC (HD7750-4400) (HD7770-5250) 1gb ddr5
500gb Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm
250gb Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm

Which one would be good enough and is durable enough for long time use?

your running CF?

i ask because there may not be enough power! how many connectors for power does that card(s) require? and how many amps will they need. not sure if either of these will do...

7750 is a 55 watt part
7770 is a 80 watt part
that i3 is a 55 watt part.
add in 50 watts for all your other parts and your at like 250 watts max draw. Keep in mind that a 250 watt draw would only happen when every bit of the PC is being taxed to its fullest.

I would get the cheapest gold rated 350-400 watt PSU I could find.
