Hello

This is the PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm welcome to other suggestions but I prefer to not spend too much, and this one looked affordable, this is for my first real build, I've only replaced single parts in the past and I've read that going cheap on a PSU is a bad idea so I really need opinions.

Other Hardware:

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo)
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866
GPU: Evga 560 TI
SSD: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB
HDD: Western Digital RE4 WD5003ABYX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" x2
Case: Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

Thanks. :)

A system with a single GTX 560ti requires a 500W PSU with at least 32A on the 12v rails and two 75W 6-pin PCIe power connectors.

The Seasonic M12II-520 with 40A on the 12V rails and one 6-pin and one 6+2 pin PCIe power connstors is sufficient for your build, less expensive than the non-modular S12II: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and has sufficient power reserve for OC.
