corsair tx 750 exhaust series psu will be perfect for that build or maybe SeaSonic M12II 520.:)

The SeaSonic maybe, but certainly not a 750w unit when the OP has no intention of CF/SLI. Purely wasted cash.

i found this review abt it and seems a good power supply . Also can u suggest me a modular power supply and i think i should add that i might upgrade to i5 2500k :) 


You could use the same PSU with an i5-2500k build. Its mostly the graphics card you using that determines what PSU wattage you need.

Doesn't really make much sense to pay an extra $20 for 520w SeaSonic over Corsair 500w to be honest.....

Both are good quality PSU's. Both have 80PLUS efficiency. Put the extra $20 towards something else :)

i just used a power calculator and i found it is 438 W with hd 6850 and 488 with gtx 560 ti

so u think cx 430 v2 that can get up to 531 or the cx 500 v2 ?

That seems a little high to me, i just tried it using multi HDD's, 4 RAM sticks, i3-1200 and 6850 and it showed it only needed about 280w. Did you make sure you clicked 1 on "Physical CPU". The i3-2100 might have 2 cores, but its still only 1 CPU unit. This is the only way how I can see the calc gave you such a high PSU recommendation??
