PSU upgrade to support FX8350, nvidia 770 and 16gb DDR3 1600MHz ram

Hi there,

I hope everyone is well. I've recently purchased a PC with these specs:

CPU - AMD 6 Core FX-6300 Black Edition, 3.5 - 4.5 GHZ Socket AM3+ Graphics Card - XFX AMD Radeon 7850 2GB gddr5 Memory DD Edition RAM - 2x4gb DDR3 RAM dual channel, Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz. Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar Blue SATA III 6Gb/s, 500GB, 7200rpm Optical Drive - LiteOn 24x SATA DVD Drive Case - CiT Knight Midi ATX Gaming Case Power Supply - CiT 500W Gaming PSU Mother Board - ASRock 960GM/US3S FX Gaming Mother Board AM3+ Operating System- Windows 7, 64bit Pro

I need to upgrade the PSU now as my current one seems to be overloaded (tried playing battlefield bad company 2, I started getting graphical artifacts about 20 minutes in). However, as the title states I would want a PSU that could power the FX8350, nvidia 770, 16gb ram and also another HDD. I don't plan on overclocking either as my mobo isn't suited to it and would prefer the parts last longer.

I was thinking about 600 watts but wanted some recommendations as to which ones would be worthwhile. My budget is around £60 maybe £70 but that's really pushing it.

Here are some I was looking at:

Thanks for the response, would a 650 watt be enough for to power up: a FX8350, nvidia 770, 16gb ram and another HDD?

600W would be more than enough , I use a 650W PSU for my i7 , GTX680sc and 16Gb of ram . More often than not , its quality that will make all the difference . Corsair has an excellent rep .

Thanks alot for the advice - I went for the 650 as it would be good future proofing for this and possibly a next system. It's reassuring if you can stick an i7, GTX 680 and 16gb ram without any problems!!
