Hi.

My specs:
ASUS M5A88-M
Phenom II x4 955 BE
8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 1333Mhz
500GB HDD
2TB HDD

My future upgrade:
AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB
Combo Drive
Corsair H80 water cooling
8GB (2x4GB) Corsair DDR3 1333Mhz - upgrade to 16GB total

I am connecting USB devices all the time...

At Newegg it calculated 417W, at eXtreme calculator it comes to 393W...

I want to buy good power supply, with good rate, in a good price... I saw many of them. Corsair looks the most promising, but expensive. Rosewill and others seems to be faulty...

Any suggestions?

And, should i get 500W, 550W or 600W and up?

Get this one

It will suffice ur system need's.

Also if u OC ur CPU u will need more power . Same for the GPU . And maybe when time will come to upgrade u will buy a better GPU = more power.

So i would suggest getting at least a 600W + PSU .

So if u choose the 2 advice get 1 of this .You can't go wrong

Thanks for the replies.

I will wait this week for some more coupon codes to appear. I will go for the 620W or 650W to be prepared for upcoming upgrades...

Thanks.
