So I've been told to get a new PSU, as the one I already have currently in the build isn't great (according to them), and I need help to choose which one.

Here is the build -

This is my first build so I really have no idea where to start to pick a new PSU, so any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

you should get a 500-550 watts psu or a 750 watts psu if planning on adding another 970 later on.

this one is a good deal at 26 with mail in rebate

here is a good 750 watts at a decent price

the Cx is perfectly fine and very reliable ive used over 60 of them never had one die or arrive dead. That should speak about how good they are.

Honestly, a corsair cx doesn't belong in any build over 500 dollars. XFX, EVGA, Antec, and SeaSonic are just a few brands who all have good supplies if you're willing to spend over 70 bucks
