It's ok, but this would be a better idea; it's closer to what you need, is of higher quality than the CoolerMaster one you linked to, has a 7-year warranty (which is excellent!), and is a tenner cheaper.

Corsair 450W HX Series Modular PSU - 7 Year Warranty - Ebuyer

I have a Corsair power supply too, and I can wholeheartedly recommend them.

Its only 450w tho, is it realy gonna be enough, i mean for a teener extra i get another 70 w for more upgradability, but what do you think?

It'll be plenty; that 450W will power a GTX260 fine along with the rest of your hardware (it would power my rig ok, I only got the 750W so I could add another graphics card).
It's entirely up to you but my opinion is that the Corsair will do you fine unless you're planning some serious upgrades.

What sort of upgrades are you planning in future?

No, a 260 is 5 cards better.

A 9600gt is a low powered card.... Also Amps are key, not Watts.

Edit.... muhaha I ninja'd Clown

Nah a GTX260 is twice the card a 9600GT is. As for the PSU Corsair is amazing, i have the 650TX and it pushes my OC'd i7 and SLI GTX260's just fine. Its really not about how many watts the PSU has, but how many Amps on the +12v rail.


Crap, haha got ninja'd

Corsair 550W VX Series PSU - 120mm Fan, 5 Year Warranty - Ebuyer

I would suggest getting that instead
