  1. Well I was wondering what psu I would need for my first build. Here are the specs.
    • Zalman Z9 Plus
    • Phenom x4 955 Black edition
    • Corsair XMS3 8gb 1600mhz RAM
    • USB wifi stick
    • Toshiba 500gb HDD
    • Saphire Radeon HD 7770 OC
    • Asus AM3+ 760G + SB710 DDR3 ATX motherboard
    I was thinking about getting a corsair CX500 V2 psu but not too sure if it will be enough. I would really appreciate any help.

    You should be fine with a 500W power supply. Card vendors usually allow for plenty of head room with their specifications.
