Power supply for system build

After using ASUSTeK's PSU calculator, the recommended minimum power supply came to 550w for this gaming system:

Intel i5 3350P @ 3.1GHz
Nvidia GTX 660ti
2 case fans
1xHDD and DVD-Combi

I'm looking at a Corsair CX 600w 80 PLUS to supply enough power for the system and the graphics card. Is this suitable or should I stretch for something more powerful? My budget is £50-60.

  1. any decent make 500 is enough...
  2. Corsair will cover that combo though you can never have to much , just means the psu will not work as hard and you can double up on the card in the future . If you can find a good 750-800 watt psu in you budget range go for it . Buy as much as your budget allows is my motto
