Hi jerry - Top Brands - Seasonic, Corsair AX, HX, & TX v2 series, PC Pwr & Cooling, Enermax, Most Antec's, XFX
I'm sure I left some worthy one's out. But, you can find a gr8 PSU from above list.

As far as which one you need, you need to furnish your sys specs.

Seasonic is the best brand overall and that's what I usually recommend. Yeah, tell us your specs and we can tell you which one to get.

Thank you a lot.
The thing is, I do not have a pc yet :(  .
But I think I will have an ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti, 8 GB RAM, a lot of case fans (!), an intel i7 processor (do not know which model suits best), a motherboard from ASUS (do not know which model fits best).
I would be glad if you could give me advice about CPU and motherboard and power supply.
I hope you can help me with the information I gave you.

Hi jerry - advice for CPU, MOBO, processor,etc will be more easily and effectively obtained by posting this
thread in the systems forum (if you haven't already done so).

Regarding the PSU, I'm assuming you are going to use only one GPU (GTX 660ti) and therefore a quality
550w unit will work nicely with a little breathing room.

Here's some to consider, without knowing your budget (check other sites also)

I feel better about the 1st two, the 3rd if you are on a tight budget
