Good Enough PSU?

I am building a gaming PC. I do not know much about power supplies, so I was hoping someone could let me know if either of these would be a good choice. I have a pretty low budget, I won't be getting any PSUs over $60.
Would either of these work?

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
Mobo: MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ AMD 970
RAM: 8 gigs ddr3
HDD: 400 GB Caviar blue
Video card: Radeon HD 7770

  1. This is a good psu for your build xfx pro450 $45 http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=63238&vpn=P1450SX2B9&manufacture=XFX
  2. Both of those cooler master units aren't very good. Go with the xfx suggested or a cx430 from corsair
  3. +1 for the xfx. the corsair isnt very good as well. it can only supply around 300w

    The 80 plus certified 430w psu from corsair isn't very good? Now that's funny...
  5. I'll look into the xfx a bit more.

    I would go for this one with that tight of a budget,

    Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

    that video card says you need 500W or better and if you run a Power supply at Max always they burn out fast, if you wanted to drop a little bit more you could get a much better power supply.

    You don't need a 500w psu for a 7770. The xfx pro450 will be just fine for that build.
  9. I'm pretty sure xfx is made by seasonic as well......
  10. it is
