By reading the thread. We don't need 50 million threads for one PC topic.

Anyways, when you buy a PSU you want quality brands because it's a 50/50 chance that if your PSU blows it could just simply die or surge your whole system leaving you with a big ???? as to what is dead or dieing.
With that being said, you want Corsair, Thermaltake, Antec, or Silverstone.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

With that you can get a 7870 or a 560ti, or even a 570 if you wanted.

570 hands down, but I would get this one. The 570 SCs had some probs.

Thank you all very much for the help (specially PP Mguire) - I will now go with the EVGA GeForce GTX 570 graphic card + CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 power supply unit.

Thanks again for the help

On the psu, the Antec I posted, the OCZ and that cx600, I'd all put in the same quality level, despite Corsair other lines are top, the cx isn't quite there.

Just to compare, the ocz has 2 25A razils for about 45A total, the Corsair has 1 rail at 40A.
The ocz is modular, so if yhou have a small case this is a huge help.
The corsair has a 5yr warrenty.. OCZ only has 3yrs.

I might tend to go for the OCZ. BUT both would be just fine.

After several OCZs around me started dieing I stopped recommending them. They were all different models and different ages. One thing in common, post PCP&P take over. I recommend Corsair because even though their lower models aren't Seasonic OEM they are still pretty rock solid. You can't buy a 50 dollar PSU and expect to run 480 SLI on it. If you buy a cheaper 600w PSU then if you treat it that way it will do just fine.

I gauge it this way personally, I would trust any of the Corsair PSUs over my Ultra X2 550w in my server. It has been running rock solid since 2006.
