Hello, I am building a new PC to work (mostly programming in Visual Studio) and play BF3 sometimes.

I'm going to build something like this:

Intel i5 2500K
ATI Radeon HD 6950 2048MB DDR5 Sapphire
2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz GSkill Sniper
1TB HDD Caviar Black
Not sure about the motherboard yet.

But I am kinda limited to some parts because I am trying to buy everything at the same place, and here in my country is not easy to buy from places like newegg and get it shipped without spending a fortune.

I would like to know if some of these PSU will work for the PC I want to build:

COOLERMASTER SILENT PRO M700W (not silentpro GOLD)
COOLERMASTER GX650
COOLERMASTER GX750

I checked the 80 plus website and they seem to be certified but with the standard cert.

any of them would work. they all provide plenty of wattage and coolermaster is a good brand. basic 80+ is fine. the gold rated ones are only 7-10% more effecient.

GX750 gives you more power when you start overclocking cpu and gpu. and these are best series from COOLER MASTER.

I'd suggest the 750 just because you might want to crossfire in the future. Or even if you don't, it'll be so over rated it will last a long, long time.
