Hey guys, I'm going to buy an ATi 5830 and I'm not sure about which PSU I should buy. I was thinking about Xilence redwing series 580w or Corsair CX 600w.
The system would be:
Gigabyte HD 5830
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 @ 2666 MHz
Asus F8000
2x2 GB RAM
1x HDD
3x fans + CPU fan
I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
Oh, and I'm not gonna buy any other gfx cards or overclock anything.

The Corsair VX 450W will be enough for your needs..

Well I have used the Corsair PSU calculator before and it said that the VX 450 would be enough but I was a bit skeptical because it has only 34 Ampers on the +12V rail and I was told that I would need like 35-40.
Those other 3 look good but it's too bad the OCZ ones can't fit in my case:( 
I live in Czech Republic so no newegg for me but Corsair VX 450 costs approximately the same as Corsair CX 600 and is like 10 bucks cheaper than Seasonic 520W Bronze so which one should I go for? And does Corsair CX 600 being builder series mean it shouldn't be used for gaming?

The Builder series is still a good psu but not Corsairs best.

I would say get the Seasonic.

+1 for the Seasonic 520.. Especially since the prices are very close..

So I guess I'll go with Seasonic then. I'll just wait till 2011 to save some money.

I've been doing some more research in other stores and it seems that Corsair VX 550W costs the same Seasonic S12II 520W Bronze. So which one should i buy?

There is hardly any difference between them.. You wont go wrong choosing one over the other..

If I had to choose I'd get the Corsair but both are good.
