Need help picking out the best power supply.

Hey guys, I'm about to order PC parts this following Monday, and want to make sure I get everything right. I am quite unsure of the correct power supply I need, and help would be appreciated. I am also not too sure on the tower, either.

My current tentative specs:
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504
Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102948
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820139075
Tower case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811322016
CD Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106276
HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148840

What would be a good power supply? Are the tower and motherboard okay? It would make my life easier if you could find the correct product(s) in newegg.

Thanks guys:)

  1. Case recommendation:

    Power supply:
    A 600 Watt power supply will give you plenty of space for future updates.

    Another thing I would change personally - change the value DIMMs to something better looking. Take a look at these from corsair:

    They are 10$ more expensive, but are faster ,will look better on that motherboard And have better heat dissipation, which might come in handy when you're overclocking. Just a suggestion
  2. OCZ...ew...

  4. What's wrong with OCZ power supplies?
  5. The ModXstream are a middle of the road PSU...not partiularly bad performing but not great. The good thing is that they can usually be found at great prices. The Seasonic S12II-520 has two more years of warranty, is a very high quality PSU, only has 2A less power on the 12V, and costs less than the ModXstream: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094&Tpk=s12ii%20520
    The ZT/ZS series are better quality than the ModXstream but they also cost more and run into stiff competition from Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, XFX...
  6. +1 on the Seasonic PSU.
    Cases are an extreme personal preference item, but check out Rosewill's offerings. I've used probably 8 different Rosewill cases, some more than once, and been happy with all of them.
