This is the specific PSU I was looking at getting, but I'm not sure if it is to be trusted.
Thanks,

LED Fans, i5 3570K CPU, nVidia 660 Ti, another fan and yeah thats about it but i think that should give enough power to let them run, but I'm not sure if they're a good brand because my friend bought a cooler master and he said it blew up, so I don't want that happening to me.
Thanks,

That's a <250W system at full load, you don't need anything near to 700W, you'll be far better off with a lower output, higher quality unit... I see you're in NZ, I'll check what's on offer and return with a few suggestions..

Well, what you have there is a ~70W CPU, a ~130W VGA and everything else would easily fit a 50W envelope.

Using PriceSpy I found these two at relatively good prices (either of them would make good choices so pick the one you want):
FSP Raider 450W @ XFX Core 550W

Hey original, How would a Corsair HX650 compare to a Rosewill Capstone 650M ?

Technically not stealing because OP got his answers tongue.gif
