These two are within my budget (£55) but I dont know which one to get(if either)

My new gaming build consists of : i5 ivy oc'd, H100 closed loop cooler, sapphire 7870, 3 other case fans(1 LED) &a standard HDD. I've used a PSU calculator and they put around 450w ( ive no idea how accurate that is) so im looking for some help as ive clue

Any and all guidance/help is appriciated :)

The XFX Core 550W is an outstanding PSU that is actually mfr by Seasonic. Its 44A on the 12V rails is more than sufficient for a system with a single HD 7870 (requires 30A) and OCed i5 (2500K? 3570K?) and it also has sufficient PCI power connectors (two 75W 6-pin PCIe connectors required). I would go for it over the CX600.

Thank you both! The i5 is 3570k. I'll purchase my xfx now! :)
