At least NCIX has had them for a while (a couple months?), so Canadians have been using them for a while. In fact you can get them on NCIXUS for $50:

At one point a weekly sale had them going for something like $30 (no rebate), which was a pretty nice deal, to say the least.

This is OCN, so there is nothing that is overkill.
So I would replace that 950 with a 1.21 Jigawatts PSU.

But going overkill on a Powersupply is a waste of money. You aren't gonna get more FPS with a bigger PSU. >___<

Alright mate. You are correct.

But he's correct also .

Thanks for the info guys. Also I'd like to add, I'm not from the USA nor Canada. I'm from europe and in my country we don't have many stores selling Seasonic, OCZ or Silverstone : \\. We have Corsair tho . At least 1 of the top brands are available.

Considering these, I have these options.

SEASONIC S12 II 430W ~100 USD
SEASONIC S12 II 620W ~125 USD

CORSAIR Builder Series CX430W ~50 USD
CORSAIR Builder Series CX500W ~73 USD
CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 ~85 USD
CORSAIR Gaming Series GS600W ~95 USD

Go for the Seasonic psu's if you have a choice. They are one of the top brands out there and the quality is unsurpassed. Sure, it might cost a little extra but its peace of mind that matters. A quality 400-500W psu will be good for your current setup.

Thanks for the insight mate. I'll consider Seasonic, although they are pretty expensive here... sadly : \\.

There are other decent options under other brands in Europe. At those prices, the Seasonic PSUs are bad options. Do you have a link (doesn't need to be English) for what choices are available?

CX430 (original, not V2, especially) is low for Phenom II X4 and GTX 560 Ti. CX500 would be okay, but maybe there is something better?

Well, we have the Corsairs mentioned above. Also there are Enermax PSUs with ridiculously high prices. Also:

Antec HCG-620 ~ 110 USD
Antec EarthWatts EA500-EC ~ 100 USD

There is also the Corsair TX650 v2 ~ 105 USD (This looks like a good buy, but everyone says it's very noisy)

UPDATE: Thanks for all the help guys, but I needed to decide fast, so my buyer wouldn't run off : ). I went with the - little more power than 400ish watts - TX650 v2. I guess this will be also more future proof and has 5 years of warranty. I hope I won't hear much of the noise (some guys say that it's pretty loud).

Thanks again for the help!
