So here my build

http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/pjmX

All I need now is a power supply, one that has right watts and is safe from a good brand.

There so many I don't know, so can any of you help me?

My budget is nothing but I don't want the cost to be very high.

If you are overclocking, then make sure to get a CPU cooler.

Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, and XFX make good units. You should be fine with 500-550W if you don't plan to Corssfire in the future.

Okay, I plan to overclock next month when I get the cooler master 212 Eco for Christmas, so for the time being I use the stock cooler. I don't plan to get another one, I always hear bad things about SLI/crossfire so in like 3-4 years when I need to upgrade I'll a new gpu. I heard seasonic are best brand for power supply's. Are you able to post any links? I don't want to buy one and find out it not enough power

The Antec model is made by Seasonic. The Seasonic is modular though, meaning that cables that you are not using you do not have to use.


In the title it says SLi ready, if I do plan to go crossfire I'm guessing I don't have the power for it? Also are you sure 520watts is enough?

520W from the Seasonic should be plenty. And if you plan to Corssfire those, you are going to need at least a 750W.
