I'm just about to buy all the components for my new pc.
R.I.P my old gaming pc.
I think it's all good but i'm not too sure about the 450w PSU with the gtx650ti.
I know XFX psu's are made by seasonic and are very reliable but i don't know if it's worth upgrading to a 500w to be safe.
Also, i'm not sure if the case is any good or if the motherboard is any good.
Here's the complete list of components.

This comes to £580 and the most i'd like to spend is 600
So please don't reccomend I get gtx680 4 way sli, I'm too poor for that shiz.
Thanks in advance.
:wahoo:  :lol:  :hello:  Custom smilies FTW!

I thought 550w was a bit much for a 650ti, would a corsair 500w builder series be OK.
Also the Z77 is on sale so is around the same price as a H77

the corsair builder 500w can only provide around 400w from what i know.

its nice to have some headroom. and also, if a 7850 is cheaper or is the same price, get that instead

The 7850 is about £30 more than the 650ti

What about this PSU then, Antec are a good brand and should give me a bit more breathing room.

heres the 7850. it performs quite a bit better than the 650ti in some games and performs the same in bf3

the antec unit is basically a less efficient version of the xfx 550w. its ok for the most part
