PSU Help! (Everything Part Ready Except for PSU)

Hey guys I am basically ready to order everything on my PC except I am not sure if the Power Supply I have chosen is sufficient enough for my current build/future OC build. Heres a link to my ready-to-order build.

PC BUILD: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nuuQ

Basically my question is will this PSU be sufficient enough for my current build and also will this PSU be sufficient enough when I decide to overclock my system in the future. Last thing I want is getting the wrong Power Supply and end up messing the whole build up.

Am I better off using this PSU just to be on the safe side? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095

Thanks for the Help!

  1. Looks good! I'm sure that PSU is sufficient for that system but the issue is, Seasonic power supplies don't have the notoriety and quality (I think) that a good Coolmaster or Corsair PSU does. Here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171052&Tpk=coolermaster%20gx%20650 is the PSU I use and I absolutly love it (don't worry about the negative reviews it's great). Plus, then you have the option to add another card down the road.

    Imagination may be more important than knowledge but when recommending power supplies at least SOME knowledge is pretty damn important. Coolermaster has a reputation all right .....for the absolute crap they sell as power supplies. Seasonic has a repuation as well.....for making the best power supplies on the market including many of the high end Corsair models.

    OP stick with the Seasonic. And a system with a single HD 7850 only needs a recommended 450w unit so the 520 is more than enough for your build.
  3. Thank you both for the fast reply guys, and Mclovits thanks for the input and thanks for your recommendation but I do want a Modular PSU as it is my first build (sorry to leave that out) but I think im gonna go with what anort3 said, also I've done quite a bit of research about the brands and I've come to a conclusion that Seasonic does it fairly well. I just wanted to know if the wattage was enough for my build. Thank you both though for the answers.

  5. You are fine with almost any single card solution with that 520 up to an HD 7950/GTX 670. Here is a handy reference list.
