  1. A 560ti requires a 500W PSU. To be safe, I recommend a 550W PSU. Try the XFX PRO550W for $75.

    For case, try the Corsair Carbide 400R. You can remove the hard drive cage to improve airflow.
  2. For a system using a single GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.Overclocking of the CPU and GPU(s) will, of course, increase the +12 Volt continuous current rating required depending on the magnitude of the overclock you are trying to achieve. I recommend this combo

    CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

    bundled with:

    1x Corsair Carbide Series 500R White Steel structure ...

    In stock.

  3. Where did you get that from? I always wanted to know where ko888 got that info from.
  4. Here another recommendation PSU:XFX Core Edition PRO550W - Power supply ( internal ) - ATX12V 2.2/ EPS12V 2.91 - 80 PLUS Bronze - AC 100-240 V - 550 Watt - active PFC
