Which PSU will suit me best? My rig in the sig ,i want future proofness to be safe with something like gtx 680 or hd 7970.
http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6790 GX LITE 700W Cooler Master
http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=2573 RealPower M620 Cooler Master
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096 SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W
They are all on the same price in my country .All i search is future proofness and being safe with sli/crossfire on latest gen gpu's.

 

From these, the 620w SeaSonic S12II is the only one worth looking at because the other two are low-quality units while the SeaSonic is a very decent power supply.  It is not high-end, but it's definitely safe to recommend and even I would be happy with it powering my overclocked system.

As for what power supply are able to power a 560Ti, 7970, or 680, a quality 450w would do. Since your mobo allows it, are you planning on adding a second card? Also, since you are from another country than the US, where are your buying this from (links please)? And what's your budget?

 

This.

 

I cannot stress it enough.

 

Also, it is not safe to overclock on a low-quality power supply such as the 460W Cooler Master Elite Power.  It will only last a year or two.

There are good and bad PSUs from most well-known brands.  So, it's not a good idea to shop by brand names alone:

If you're lucky, not even taking into account the possible damage a bad / broken unit can do to other (expensive) hardware.
