More about what
  1. pcpartpicker.com will give you wattage requirements.
  2. So I went through it all and I got 403 Watts so if I went to a 600w I should have leg room?
  3. I'd get this (actually, it's due to arrive any day now): Seasonic

    The only complaint seems to be short cables... so if you're building in a small case (mid tower), like me, it's the p/v winner imo. Bigger case (full tower), well.. probably not so great.
  4. yeah go with 600w . it would be be better
  5. Also... I'd opt for the Cosair 200r if you can find it or the Cooler Master 431 at that pricepoint.

    Based on what? At 80+ gold the 550w PSU I linked for him will be more than adequate. You would have to pay a bit more for a 600w that was better (and even then it wouldn't be required).
