Hello, I made an account here because I heard this place is for system builders and all. Anyhow, My PSU is starting to crap out on a low power system, I plan on upgrading my GPU from a 6570 to a 7770/50 and C2D to a C2Q/1155, so a 400W/500W PSU would be great, would appreciate the help.

Well here is the best price on a good PSU.
430W- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
500W- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
600W- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you buy today go for the 600W if not then the 500W. If you are sure you don't want better than a 7850 then the 430W will be fine. Although if you ever want to upgrade above that you'll need the 500W. So I strongly recommend either the 5-600W PSU. Although the 430W will handle the 7770 easily.

Many Thanks, I will most likely buy the 500W It fits what i need for my current build.

Those Corsair ones aren't bad, and here's another one you can look at, if you want to look for sales or prices from different sites or whatever. If your PSU's going out now though I'm guessing you'll be ordering one sooner rather than later.
