Go to solution Solved by mgsstar,

Yea it will be more than enough to power this system currently but if you want to get a better video card in the future I would recommend to get at least a 80+ bronze 550w power supply.http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/550-Watt-Seasonic-S12G-Non-Modular-80--Gold_936922.html

What psu do you recommend for this system?
AMD FX 8350

2*4GB DDR3 1600 Corsair LP

Asrock 990fx Extreme 3

Noctua CPU Cooler

Asus GT640 Silent Passive cooled

2* 7200RPM HDD

2* Samsung Evo 840 120gb

 

Please bare in mind that I maybe want to throw a better gpu in there in future. Should I still be able to go with http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/450-Watt-Corsair-RM-Series-Modular-80--Gold_932930.html

 

or should I buy a higher 80+ bronze psu?

For the current spec? Yes that 450w should be fine. But i would suggest getting at least 550w if you plan to change to higher end graphics card in future.

Unless you plan to get something more power hungry than a 780/290 in the future, you're fine.
