500W PSU for Sapphire HD7950

Right now I have a 450W PSU with an AMD Sapphire HD7950 which works but I think only because my motherboard and CPU are very dated (Intel e7400) and since I'm upgrading my CPU to an Ivy Bridge i5 and a decent Asrock mobo I'm guessing that my 450W PSU just won't do it anymore. Recommended PSU for my GPU is 500W.

http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/powersupplies/nov-psu500.html I was looking at PSUs and found this, and yet it wasn't a proper brand it had really good reviews so should I take a gamble and get this or just get a decent branded PSU?

    This Corsair should fit the bill and is not too pricey. That no name one is just too iffy.

    Well, the CX500 isn't going to be much of an upgrade unless the OPs current PSU is low quality. It's more of a 450W PSU if you ask me.
  4. the cx line isnt made of great build also i recommanded 650 for future upgrades, but yeah the 550watt model is good also :).
