Hello, I posted a thread two days ago about a power supply. Today I went to the store again and returned it. This what the stores have recommended me as alternatives:

(Sorry for the picture quality, the battery was dying so I was rushed in taking the photos. Ignore the numbers on the photos, I converted them into dollars.)



Corsair GS 700W
$134



XFX Pro 650W
$112



Cooler Master GX 650W
found it in other store for 420 = $112



Thermaltake Litepower 650W black edition
$107


Edit: removed (200-240v input only).

Antec VP550P 550W
$72




Coolmax 120mm fan CL series 600W
$67





My build:
CPU: Intel i5 3550
MoBo: ASUS P8B75-V
RAM: 8GB 1600
GPU: Asus 7850-DC2-2GD5-V2
one HHD, one fan, stock heatsink.


Giving the local prices, what do you recommend me to buy. Thank you in advance for helping. This is the final part for my first build :) .

The antec will be fine, but if you wanna crossfire in the future then get the corsair. They are both pretty good, as though they are reliable brands. Also, look up the parts in new egg, they might be cheaper.

Thank you for the suggestions. I'm not planning to crossfire. Also I can't buy online for heavy items because of the high international shipping costs which will make the final price similar to those. Thanks again.

Update:
I just found that the antec one is 200-240v input only. I think I'll remove it from the list. Even though I can use it in my house, I don't want to be limited to 220v outlets only.

The two PSUs I'm uncertain to choose from are XFX Pro 650W and Cooler Master GX 650W. They both have the same price too.

The XFX is Seasonic made, 53Amps 12V power, 80Plus bronze, 3 yr warranty it's a very solid choice between all those i would get it.

I personally use the XFX core edition so I can tell you it's a sturdy PSU.

Hi - bigcyco hit the nail on the head, go with the XFX. Not only is it a Seasonic made unit, Coolermaster has a pretty bad rep in
PSU's
