Suggested PSU for MSI GTX 560 Ti-448 1280MB Twin Frozr III Power Edition

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!

  1. 500w PSU would be enough for GTX 560Ti.

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

    Look for 80PLUS ratings.
  2. Some other good ones:

    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 ).
  4. What's your max psu budget?
  5. 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.
  6. Oh thank you even answered my question before I asked it :) This looks like exactly what I need I am going to look into this but I think you may have found a winner. Thank you very much!
