Hi so as the title says I am hoping someone can recommend a PSU for my new graphics card as I currently have only a 450 watt.

Price is very important after what I just spent on the card, but I realize quality is important so if anyone can share any good brands/specific models which have good bang for their buck and will still power the card it would be much appreciated.

I am running a

quadcore i5 760 @ 2.8 GHz
msi H55M-e23 mobo
4 GB DDR3 RAM
1 TB SATA 7200 HD
7.1 HT Omega Striker sound card
Dlink PCI wireless adapter

I think thats it save the graphics card. Thank you!

500w PSU would be enough for GTX 560Ti.

Recommended brands include: XFX, Corsair, SeaSonic, Antec.

Look for 80PLUS ratings.

Yes
Kind of in the middle ground though , more than enough for a single card system, but a bit lite for a dual card system ( both lack the connectors for SLI as well ).

Thank you everyone for all the suggestions! I was hoping not to spend more than $150.00 but under $100.00 would be great so long as I don't have to worry about the unit failing or it not delivering the advertised wattage.

I have never upgraded the PSU before so I really appreciate the advice as I would hate to somehow damage my new card or my system due to a careless oversight on my part. Thanks again!

*Edit: I would ideally like to give myself a cushion for future upgrades/overclocking so should I consider something in the 600-700 watt range to be safe? One last question any drawbacks to modular power supplies? It sounds very convenient to not have extra cables just taking up space.
