    what psu to use?

    hi im relatively new to pc gaming and modding so got a few rookie questions really,
    im currently running a
    700w 21 amp psu,
    M5A78L-M/USB3 mother board
    amd fx1 cpu
    a radion hd 2gb gpu (not sure on the exact one but not relevant atm)
    a 2tb western digital hdd
    16gb corsair vengance ram
    1x 140 led fan
    2x 120mm led fan
    fan controller 36w

    the problem is im going to be getting a
    PNY NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti PCI-E Graphics Card - 2 GB
    intel i5 cpu
    a new motherboard for around 150 - 200 not sure what one just got a rough budget.
    and a round about 60gb -120gb ssd

    so firstly i want to start with a new psu that will be capable of running everything as my psu is only 21amp so not very good, i might eventually get a second identical graphics card and run them via sli so i want the psu capable of running everything so i dont have to buy a new one unless its better to buy a second psu in the future when i buy a the second gpu.

    ive been looking at this Corsair AX760 760W Full Modular Power Supply
    would this be good enough?

    thanks alot for the help

    Easily. Anything 600 watts or better with at least 30A on the 12V rail to be safe

    I can recommend you to use HEC 550 WinPower PSU. This PSU goes well in hand. This is what im using right now. Here's my specs:

    AMD Athlon 64 3000+
    Epox 8KDA3J mobo
    Sapphire X800Pro VC
    2x512mb GEIL value Ram
    HEC 550 WinPower PSU
    2x80gb Seagate Barracuda
    3x40gb Seagate Barracuda
    ASUS CD-Writer
    ASUS DVD rom

    and with all of these, i still have a lot of power left

    I think that special brand name does not matter. The main point is the value of power.
