  1. Usually PSU choice depend upon on your graphic card. The Minimum System Power Requirement for your GTX 570 is 550W.

    As you have an HAF 922 that allows cable management, then get a modular PSU like 550W Corsair TX550M 80PLUS Bronze Modular http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplies+-+PSUs/Modular+650W+or+less/550W+Corsair+TX550M+80PLUS+Bronze+Modular+Power+Supply+?productId=49403

    If you want a little more power, then you can go for a 650W Corsair TX650M 80PLUS Bronze Modular http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Power+Supplies+-+PSUs/Modular+650W+or+less/650W+Corsair+TX650M+80PLUS+Bronze+Modular+Power+Supply+?productId=49404

    Funny you say that I am sending back the same PSU you posted well its a XFX 850 CORE EDITION and I have had it for a year and already it is making clicking noises and for a whole week been in circles only today have a actually got some where. I shall get a replacement and use for another rig. TBH I don't think ill purchase a product from XFX again. Thanks though for your help and time.
  5. GS stands for Gaming Series, while TX for Enthusiast Series.

    Yes, 550W would be enough for card, but since you´re overclocking the CPU, then a 650W PSU would fit a bit better.

    As for the review, most gave 5 stars to it -- the most critical review suggested a modular PSU, as I wrote above.
  6. Thanks I am going for http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CP-9020003-UK-Enthusiast-Series-TX750M/dp/B005DGEOJO/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1335799189&sr=1-1 seems better buy for me and not really liking XFX anymore after the hassle
