How much power will this build require?

I have a MSI 570A-645 motherboard
A AMD phenom II x4 965 Processor
A AMD Radeon HD 6770 graphics card
And a 500gb WD 7200 RPM Hard drive

How much power will this build require? And could you recommend me a good psu?

Thank you!

    A quality 500W psu will run those specs no problem.
    good - Corsair Builder Series CMPSU-500CXV2 500W

    better- Antec High Current Gamer 520W 40A
    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=56787&vpn=HCG%2D520&manufacture=Antec&promoid=1314
    Best- 600-650W units with 5yr warranties from Antec,Corsair,XFX,and Seasonic(who oem alot of the aforementioned brands units)
  2. Both will fit my motherboard right?
    Also is thermaltake a good brand?

    Not the best but far from the worst.
    That's the best choice based on what Fry's is offering.
    I see they have a typo Antec Basiq units have a 3yr warranty not 1yr.
    I have an Antec Basic 350W unit that's been running for over 4yrs.
    Low end Thermaltake and Coolermaster units are not recommended generally.
  4. Alright, thank you very much for your help:)
