Hi everyone.
I'm building a new rig for around $750.00. The main parts are from a barebone kit off Tigerdirect

Here are the final specs:
MSi Raptor Mid-Tower Case
ASUS p8Z77-V LX ATX Mobo Z77
Intel i5 2500k
16GB Corsair 1333Mhz 9-9-9-24
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM
3 Masscool 120mm fans+ Aerocool Fan controller
Windows 7 HP
Sony Optiarc 24X DVDRW
EVGA GT220 (yes i know, pretty bad, plan on upgrading to Radeon HD 6770)

**Either ULTRA LSP550 or COOLERMASTER RS500 PSU**


Which PSU should I use considering the probable upgrade to HD6770?

Agreed. Personally I wouldn't throw in a $35 PSU in my $700 system. The Cooler Master is better than the Ultra IMO.

The Corsair Builders Series 500w PSU is $50 after rebate on Newegg.
