    Default Need help with a psu for my gaming pc

    So I've almost completed my new gaming pc, but I'm still looking for a good psu to finish things of. Right now I have the following list:

    Windows 7
    Intel Core i5-3470
    Gigabyte H77-D3H
    Corsair vengeance 1600ddr3 low profile
    Samsung 830 128GB SSD
    Seagate Barracuda 7200 1TB
    Sapphire HD 7870 OC 2GB
    Antec Sonata Plus 550 case
    Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM

    For psu's I was looking at the following 5 options:

    XFX Pro 550W - 60€
    PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK III 500W - 70-75€
    Antec HCG-520M - 83€
    Corsair Enthusiast TX550M - 78€
    Seasonic M12II 520W - 80€

    A few of these power supplies look like over kill to me but the prices are pretty similar that I included them anyway. Basically I looked for reliable brands with a slight preference for modular psu's.

    Based on these prices, what would be a good value for money purchase? Or am I overlooking a great psu? Help would be greatly appreciated.

    XFX is the best value if you don't need to have modular PSU. If you do, then OCZ ZT 550W would be excellent for your needs. It's better and cheaper than PCP&C, Seasonic and Antec, and on par with Corsair.
