http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3276573&Sku=ULT-LSP650
It has 650W and 80 plus bronze.

Here is my build:
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo)
Mobo: ASRock Z77 Pro4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
SSD: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 120GB
GPU: SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB

Will this PSU suitable my PC well? Thank you

More about will good
  1. A system with a single HD 6850 requires a 500W PSU with one 75W 6-pin PCIe power connector and at least 26A on the 12V rails. The ULT-LSP-650 is electrically sufficient and has sufficient power connectors. There are no good reviews on this product and the fact that Ultra only specifies 456W (38A) on the 12V rails makes me think that it is a liar-label PSU that should be rated as a 500W PSU. Good quality PSUs make most of the power available on their 12V rails because that is where the most power is drawn from in modern PCs. For example, this Seasonic M12II-520 - a 520W PSU - has more amperage available on the 12V rails than the Ultra LSP650. I would not recommend this PSU. For a few dollars more I would highly recommend the Seasonic M12II-520: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151093&Tpk=m12ii-520 If that doesn't meet your budget, then the Corsair CX430 has sufficient power (28A) and PCIe power connectors, is made by a reputable mfr with great customer support, and is half the cost of the LSP-650: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026&Tpk=cx430
  2. The Corsair clearly cheaper which is what I wanted. However, my only concern is that will it runs my PC because my PSU right now is 500W. Thanks again Rugger for replying this

    Not a progblem - glad to help. Yes, the CX430 is capable of running the system that you specified above. What is your current PSU? A good quality 500W PSU should be more than capable of running your planned upgrades.
  6. depend your budget bro

    CWT makes the Builder series of PSUs for Corsair as well as the Lepa N500-SA. The PSUs may be of similar quality but there is no way to tell without some quality PSU reviews available for the N series from Lepa. Here is a review for the CX430 from a reputable site: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=239

    The Lepa N500-SA is suffiicent for your build and looks like a decent budget-quality PSU. I can understand wanting a more quiet, better quality PSU. The issue is that those features will cost more. If you want a higher quality, more quiet PSU then my suggestion is to use your current PSU and save a few dollars more for the M12II-520: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151093&Tpk=m12ii%20520 it is worth the $10 more that you will pay over the LSP550.

    Edit: Here's a review of the non-modular version of the Seasonic M12II-520: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=185

  13. It's already at a significant discount. You can put a price watch on it at Newegg; sometimes they'll drop prices based on those watches.
