Hello, I need to know which PSU my pc will need. Could i also get recommendation on which one to buy, preferably quieter ones but not more than £100.00 please.
specs:
Coolermaster HAF 922 Mid Tower Chassis
Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU
Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-D3H
4 Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz RAM cards
XFX ATI Radeon HD6970 2GB
XFX ATI Radeon HD6950 2GB

I might do some light overclocking.

are there any changes i should make to this PC and is Kingston RAM good or shall i get Vengeance at the same speed and RAM amount?

You have an amd board for an intel cpu, that board is from amd and it's for FM2 cpus, get a lga 1155 motherboard, with chipset z77, like the asrock z77 extreme 4.
For that system, a quality psu with 750W is more than enough, here's a quality psu : http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0045L4BJ6/

It's fine, but if you want a 850W psu : http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0045L4BNW/
Usually ~60 amps for it is plenty for two 6970/6950.
The xfx 850 xfx has 70A on its rail, so you will be fine.
