So does that mean i should stick with the 600 or go for a lower one? Also any personal suggestions on PSUs?
Also if i plan on overclocking down the road will i need more power?

would work well , and is a great quality unit

If you may add another graphics card later on then a 650 watt unit will let you SLI two GTX 550 ti's comfortably
This Corsair TX 650

is a good unit for $85

If you are not going to add another graphics card ,or over clock, you can save about $55 on your mb and not lose any performance
