PSU for amd 6300 + HD 7850 (2gb)

I'm building a new PC for a friend on a tight budget, we've got everything picked out, but I'm struggling with a power supply for the system, I don't really know how much I need or what brand, all I know is i need 2x pci lol
anyway, this is the build thus far;
AMD FX 6300 @ 3.5GHZ
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3
8gb DDR3 1600mhz Ram (eventually will have 32gb)
Sapphire HD 7850 2gb OC
Seagate barracuda 1Tb hdd
Samsung dvd-rw
Full ATX case
windows 8.

so all I really need is the PSU to suit it, and Anita extra for future upgrades.
I get most of my parts from (uk site) and I don't want to spend too much on a PSU, but not a cheap nasty brand either!
its mostly for gaming, such as skyrim, battlefield 3, and Rome 2 total war when it comes out!

also any comments on this system are welcome!

  1. Hi there, check out the sticky called 'how to ask for newbuild or upgrade advice' and post back with the template from there. The more info we have the better we can help.
  2. A good 500W would do...
  3. 3 good brands: Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling. I'd buy any of those that were on sale. 500-600 watts. 400 watts would suffice, but may limit your future computers. There are many good brands out there - these were 3 on the tip of my tongue.

    Good Luck !!

    That would be sufficient for a low price, but like whoever said it said, if you plan on having it upgraded in the future, get something more like 500-600...
