  1. According to the newegg PSU calculator http://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell/tool/psucalc/index.html your system will be drawing 400 watts.

    I'd recommend a 600-750 watt just for future video upgrades.

    Also you will be much happier with an SSD instead of your 500gb HDD.
  2. yes.. all of your components are compatible. I suggest to get Gskill ripjawsx 8GB(2x4GB) DDR3 1600 to make it more killer. and regarding PSU, get corsair CX500 as a budget PSU and corsair TX 650 for a 650W PSU
  3. These will power your system with no problems:

    CORSAIR CX Series CX750 750W $99

    CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W $89
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020

    Rosewill CAPSTONE Series CAPSTONE-650-M 650W $99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182263

    Any of the three will work fine. I just gave you some different choices to look at. Remember, do not go cheap on your PSU, this is the heart of your system. Investing in a high quality PSU will make your system run for years to come.

    Wow
    A good quality 450w would run your specs

    A 520w will provide you with around twice as much power as you would use when overclocked and gaming

  5. ^ Listen to that man.
  6. Thanks to everyone for you replies, i guess i will go with the 520w since its not too expensive and i was close to my limit on expenses, and i will switch the HDD to an SSD ,thanks again everyone ^^
