I am currently look for a good 500W power supply that will be suitable for my computer. Any suggestions please? More about : choosing power supply Flightsimluke December 4, 2012 6:46:26 PM I would probably recommend the XFX Core Edition 550W for you, the extra 50W gives you a bit of headroom for any future upgrades that you choose to carry out. kkwikmick December 4, 2012 7:04:18 PM Do you think i would be able to get anything a bit cheaper than that?

What's your budget for the PSU? Tot sys Power consumption witha GTX660 is 292w. If you OC or add after market cooling than it'll increase. BUt, either the Antec & Corsair cx suggested will work. I would only add, stay with quality brands such as the two already mentioned. Personally, I would try to always go a step up from the opening price point/budget series regardless of brand, Generally you get better value (not cheaper) as the components are better.
