Hey guys, I was wondering what wattage would be good for my current parts that I picked out. I porbably won't overclock any time soon, and I need a PSU that's cheap but works well. I don't have too much money to spend now, so I can upgrade my PSU later if need be. Thanks!

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB Video Card

ASRock Z75 Pro3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard

I want my budget to be around 750. Right now I have around 50-60 dollars to spend on a PSU.

The OCZ ModXstream is $40 after discount/MIR on Amazon. A great deal on a decent quality PSU that is more than sufficient for your PC. I run an HD6950 on a Seasonic M12I-520; great PSU but a bit out of your price range.

Hmm I can't seem to find it. I see the 500w 600w and 700w options, but I don't see one for 40 dollars. Could you possibly link me to one? Thanks!

I don´t think you´d have any problem with a Rosewill PSU, tough the Corsair deal offers $10.00 rebate, making it just $5.00 difference.

Mind that Corsair´s warranty for this PSU is 3 years, while Rosewill is just 1 year.
