What PSU should I go for?

I am planning to buy a new PSU for my assembled PC, but cannot decide what to go for?

I have this configuration:
Proc: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
Mobo: ASUS m5a88-m
Ram: CORSAIR Vengeance 1x4GB 1600 Mhz
HDD: Seagate 500GB 7200 RPM SATA
and an Optical Drive.

Please tell me what PSU/s should I go for, which lands in the budget section and also has a very good performance and reviews.

More about what
  1. What GPU will you be using?
  2. Hi bittutora,

    I don't see a GPU listed, will you be using onboard graphics, or adding a GPU.

    If you aren't using a discrete GPU, something like this:


    would be very reliable. Seasonic is the best brand out there.
  3. The X4 965 BE doesn't have integrated graphics.

    But the motherboard has HD4250 on board http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A88M/#specifications
  5. Thank you
  6. Sorry , Forgot to mention.

    I have considered this GPU and I wil be installing only one unit of it : 'AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6670 1 GB DDR3' GPU. I think it would suffice for now and it has also got some good reviews too.

    Please also consider Corsair and cooler master brands also for the PSU.

    Thanks to dear friends:
    :wahoo: Rugger , Rolli59 and blade061188.
  7. The corsair CX430 is going to handle that no sweat with power to spare http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026

    I recommended SeaSonic earlier because they're pretty widely considered the best in the PSU business.

    But that corsair will do nicely
  9. A system with a single HD 6670 requires a 400W PSU with at least 26A on the 12V rails. A good quality 400W PSU is sufficient for your build; Corsair Builder Series CX430 is a good PSU for the money especially if you can get one of their frequent rebates.

    Another possibility would be the Antec VP450.
  10. Million Thanks guys.
