Hi guys i need an opinion regarding what PSU should i go for my gaming system which includes:
Core i5 3570k
Gigabyte Radeon 7970
Gigabyte Z77X UD3H
SSD KINGSTON V300 60GB + HDD WD Caviar blue KX 500 GB
Corsair veangence 2x4096
Cooler master hyper 212 evo and three other case coolers (the case is nothing fancy just a classic NOX HUMMER SX)
As i mentioned in the title i don't intend to do any oc in the near future...maybe in one or two years

It depends on what your goal is. Do you want to be running a quiet power supply or does it matter? From what you've described you can use pretty much anything at, I would say, 550w or more...

you buy a 3570k and dont want to overclock it?

thats the point of a k series cpu :) 

yeah a 550w from a good maker --antec,corsair,seasonic etc

though there seem to be a lot of deals at the moment on 650w psus

so you may get a 650w for near enough the same as a 550w

main thing is get a decent quality psu

Actually i'm not really interested in something quiet per se but yeah it would be a possitive thing if it wouldn't make that much noise...
I'm more interested in reliability and not having to worry about my system crashing in demanding games like FPSs...
If you could give me some examples in this regard i would be more than thankfull

The oc issue is that i'm new to this idea and i don't want to crash my new system from the begining :) )) first i want to learn how to do this properly and then (as i said maybe in a year or so) i would try it
