Yes, never skimp on the psu. It is the wisest investment to make. Remember when a psu goes bad,it has a nasty habit of taking other components out with it. Look for one from a reputable brand such as Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone XFX etc......... Make sure that it has a minimum of an 80+ efficiency and active pfc.
When I wrote ''locally'' I meant in my country. Ordering from abroad would almost double the price. Both PSUs I mentioned cost here (Ukraine) about $100.
Currently I have this in mind. Price went way up :s
CPU - Core i5 2500k
GPU - Radeon 6950
MOBO - P8P67 or P8Z68-V
RAM - Mushkin 997005 (2x4 1600 1.5v)
HDD - WD CB 500gb 16 SIII
PSU - Chieftec BPS 550C (FSP Everest 600w)
CASE - Zalman Z9 Plus
FAN - CM Hyper 212 Plus
I dunno if I *need* Quick Sync, and I'm also unsure whether to buy gtx 460 or 6950. Currently I have 1440x900 resolution, planning to upgrade to 1900 later... maybe... The most demanding game I play (GPU wise) is STALKER COP, and I'd like to stably run it at 60 fps on a 1440x900 (and hopefully 1900x1080) monitor.
