Hi, im needing to get a new psu but i am unsure on what to get. I dont know what wattage i would need, 700w+? The cheaper the better but obviously I want to buy a trusted brand. In the future there is a possibility I will upgrade my mobo and get another 7850 to cross fire. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Corsair c70
Asus m4a87td
Amd phenom ii x4 965
Corsair h100
Shapphire 7850 oc
2x seagate 500gb hdd
samsung 830 128gb ssd

You don't need anywhere close to 700w :)  A quality 500w unit should be able to power your rig WITH OC's!

The Corsair CX500V2 should be more than enough!

No need to go 1000w unless you plan to Quad-SLI GTX680's or HD7970's.

I got this one a few months back and its awesome so far. It is kinda big but if it fits, it's cheap, it's a good brand, plenty of power to upgrade.

As you have a excellent cpu cooler, I infer you may want to OC at some point -- so get at least a 600W PSU, then there will be some more room when you Crossfire your HD 7850.
