So I'm currently building a pc for myself and was wondering how much power I need to have everything functioning.
So far I have:

Intel i5 2500k probably will overclock, not sure to what frequency yet.
LG CD/DVD Burner
Patriot G Series ‘Sector 5’ Edition 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
Rosewill DESTROYER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 120mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan
SAPPHIRE FleX 100312FLEX Radeon HD 6950 2GB

lol, you really didn't need to link every product, we know what they are.

You only need 600W or 650W since it's only a single 6950. 750W if you plan on getting another one to crossfire.

How much is your budget? I'd say get 650W-850W.

You might want to look into the brand Raidmax, they are fairly cheap and perform pretty well.

Uh my budget is to try to keep it under 900 if I can, at least under 1000 for sure.

?

Under 900 & 1000?

You probably should make yourself more clear.

The number you supplied, would that under 900W & 1000W or amount of total spending?

I'm asking how much are you willing to spend on a Power Supply Unit.

Edit: The Corsair davcon supplied is good. [I don't like OCZ PSU's]

Well you asked for my budget. You never specified which budget so I assumed you ment the overall budget. For the power supply I wanted to spend no more than 80.

If you want to objectively, accurately and scientifically determine what PSU power is required for your Vid card and PC in both watts and 12v rail amps., the forum Utility link below will show you how easy it is to calculate this information and objectively determine which PSUs are quality built, reliable PSUs that can meet your needs. Be advised that the available 12v rail amps. is just as important as the total PSU wattage. You need both to be correct.

I didn't need to ask.

You're posting in a Power Supplies Category Forum asking with the sentence below:

"So can anyone tell me how much watts i should get and possibly the best brands with cheapest price? "

I only answered what was the budget toward the one and only question you have.

You must be mistaken.

Go on Newegg and search for Top Sellers under power supplies, Sort by: Lowest to Highest. Scroll until you see the $80 region and check starting from the highest voltages you can grab for that $80 along with their reviews. Get whichever has better reviews and uses a single +12V Rail.
