PSU For New Build, Assistance Appreciated

I'm putting together a new build over the course of this month, taking advantage of all the "Black November" deals that Newegg has to offer. My question is, how much wattage will I require to run it safely.

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

I plan to overclock the CPU to at least 4GHz

GPU: I'll be going with a GTX 560 Ti of some type. Whichever good brand (ie EVGA) has the best deal over the course of this month.

I do not plan to SLI at any time in the future.

So ya, if anyone could recommend a power supply, or at least a wattage, I'd really appreciate it. (I'll be going with a solid brand. I'm partial to Corsair, or Seasonic)

Thanks a ton!

edit: I should mention that Corsair is having a 15% sale on all of their power supplies until the end of today. (Good deal? Or do you think there will be better prior to Novembers end?)

Thanks again!

  1. Best answer
    Corsair VX550W should be fine.
  2. Awesome. Newegg is having a pretty good deal right now so I might bump up to 600 or 650 just for a little headroom. Never hurts to be a little over zealous on the psu hehe. Thanks a bunch for your help!
