A bit too close, AMD official "requirement is 700W" plus - the TT unit is OK but far from a "quality" unit.

Thanks for all your input, can anyone recommend a suitable one that is under £90? It also needs to be modular as well or the half modular as its in a Mini ITX system so space is precious

The 550 watt EVGA SuperNova G2 can be had for around £70-75 on Amazon and Scan.

The Corsair RMx is priced in the same price range

Both are about as good so just get whatever you like the most.

Just makes me wonder as I know wattage isnt anything over quality but shouldn't i really look to increase or have a similar wattage power supply?

You dont need more wattage unless you are going to add another card later and do a crossfire setup, or if you are going to mess around with BIOS volt mods.
More wattage is not better so get quality instead of wattage you dont need.

Also, keep in mind that PSUs have an optimal running load. They will run most efficient at a certain percentage of load. Having way more watts than you need, means you will be running less efficiently.

Thanks for your help, at the moment I plan to grab a AMD 390X unless I can grab a great deal on a Nvidia 980, but we will see.
