everything else is onboard (Graphics, Sound , Lan etc) so it must be taken in the calculate isnt?

Corsair CX400 / CX430 / CX500 / VX450
Antec Neo Eco 400 / Neo Eco 520 / HCG-400 / HCG-520 / TP-550 / Earthwatts 380 / Earthwatts 430 / Earthwatts 500 / Basiq 550
OCZ StealthXStream II 500 / Fatal1ty 550
SeaSonic S12II 380, S12II 430
Any of those will power your computer fine, but it won't suffice for any new video card you could get, so don't go buying a GeForce GTX 580 and expect it it to work! You'd be fine up to a GeForce GTX 460 or Radeon 6970 though.

dude i think you mistake , i did a calculate given with the geforce 426+my spec its 533W.. so how a 500w 450w 430w of the models you provide can handle it? not to mention 300W

*thats even without reminding the "headroom", or whatever is called that you should leave a little bit
wat unused when you buy PSU
