Hello everyone, I'am planning on upgrading my PSU because I want to upgrade my GPU(will buy a gtx 660), and for that I will need a decent PSU(not my current no label 460W PSU) in order not to blow this up.

I would like u guys to tell me what is a good 500W PSU (which is enough for gtx 660), like a well built one, low price, silent fan and a good reliability.

I am in kind of a budget to buy the PSU because I only wanted to upgrade my GPU but ended knowing that it was better to upgrade the PSU first.

Thank you all :) 

EDIT:Was thinking in the Corsair Builder Series CX 500W PSU, but is there any other brand with cheaper prices and still good build quality?

As long as its at least 80 plus Bronze...you're good to go.

I have a 520w w/ 2HDDs, 1SSD, 660ti, and overclocked 2500k.The PSU is holding up well.

450w is cutting it close, but should get the job done.
