For a system using two GeForce GTX 550 Ti graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 38 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Get a 650W smps to be on the safer side...

If you are planning to do a lot of gaming and not high end video editing, then i would suggest you to go for an i5 2500K and pair it with a good Z68 mobo.

What brands and models do you have available to you in your market?

Do you have an online retailer that you usually purchase from?

What is your SMPS budget range?
