Hi guys,

I'm building a new pc. My specs are as follows. I wont be doing any OC on my system.

CPU: Core i5 3570 3.4Ghz
Mobo: AsRock Z77 Extreme 4
SSD: 120gb Sandisk
RAM: G.Skills 8GB ram

I'm keeping my current GPU (512mb ATI HD 4870). I dont wish to upgrade my gpu at this time to save some money.

Can you guys please advice me in what Watt PSU I should be looking at. Based on some PSU calculator websites I was thinking of Corsair CX600-V2

Can you guys suggest another one or another PSU if you think this wont be sufficient for my build.

Thx in advance.

My take, I think the Corsair CX600-V2 would be fine for your build there.

Best solution

The Corsair cx600-v2 will work just fine for you. There are better but they are also more money.

The Corsair cx600 is only $50 after rebate so it is the cheapest option and these listed here are more expensive and are better quality but you would be spending more so that's an option for you to consider.
