Looking at efficiency in that wattage range (450W-550W) and taking into account you wanted a modular PSU this is a pretty good one:

Seasonic is one of the best manufacturers when it comes to PSU. This one is gold rated and fully modular. However you can save a bit if you take away the modular:

The CAPSTONE units are really good. Roswill doesn't have the best PSU's in general but from what I've read the CAPSTONE's are very sold units.

What does the gold efficiency mean? Is that like 90% or something? That seasonic one looks good, its only $10 more than the other one that i was looking at, and its gold rated as opposed to bronze.

The gold rating sets a certain standard to which the PSU must meet at certain loads. The percentages below reflect the efficiency needed at a certain load to meet the gold rating.


80 Plus Gold --

- Load: 20%/50%/100%
- Efficiency: 87%/90%/87%


Bronze/Silver/Platinum also have their respective values.

Yeah I like the Seasonic one. Fully Modular 550W and looks sleek. I'd go that route, you'll have tons of headroom to OC both GPU and CPU to the full potential and be able to keep cable management nice and neat.

looks like fun thumb.gif

getting an aftermarket cooler as well will allow you to push your 8320 to its' limits.

the newest revision gives me ideas. I know some good deals, so here's my revision to bring everything within budget....

 

Seeing as you count after rebate price...

 

AMD FX-8320 - $166 shipped [Amazon]

MSI-990XA-GD55 + free 2x4GB DDR3-1600 + Xigmatek GAIA SD1283 - $110 shipped all and $15 rebate [Newegg]

WD Caviar Blue 1TB HDD - $70 shipped [NCIX]

EVGA GTX 560 Ti 448 - $210 shipped, $40 rebate [Newegg] GREAT deal

NZXT Source 210 - $40 shipped [Amazon]

Corsair CX 500 V2 - $50 shipped, $20 rebate [Newegg]

DVD drive - $16 shipped [NCIX]

$662 shipped before rebates, $587 after

 

Yes, I did cut a number of premiums to cut the costs, but you save well over $100. It also puts you back within your initially planned budget of under $600. Everything will work with each other. This while you take on an aftermarket heatsink.


Dangit, the combo deal I suggested is no longer available...

Keep in mind with xd's revision you are limited with the PSU. That PSU is labeled as 500W but only puts out 406W on the 12v+ rail, which means you really should not overclock. With your GPU taking nearly half of that wattage under load, your CPU can easily take the rest when OC'd. If you'll ever actually have them both under full load and use that power though , is another story.
