    Well that's no fair, seeking deals and cutting corners on almost every component >_>
    That setup cost you less than half what it's actually worth!

    super badass for that price. ofc the 6770 seems out of place, but for 400 bucks you just can't complain.

    500W is the minimum requirement for that GPU are you sure you don't want to have atleast a 550W to be safe?

    That whole system could be run on a 400w psu if needed... I think 100w is more than enough to cover some possible overclocking and such.

    real average power consumption of a system with i52500k and 560ti should be around 350W no more. However 350W PSU can't deliver that wattage. And most likely won't deliver needed amps. Thats why manufacturers recommend more expensive hardware just to be sure their recommendation works 100%. Or rip off more money

    500w minimum required could also possibly be assuming maybe you have an older more power hungry CPU+chipset than 2500K and P67/Z68 lol.

    That's true. I put a 650W in my own system (said 550W req) just to make sure it's enough (also for future upgrades) besides that using a low PSU might get troubles with warranty.

    Yeah, I've had my Corsair TX V1 650watt PSU for about a year and a half, and I won't be upgrading it till I have the money, but I definitely am going to get a modular, probably around 750 watt for possibilities with SLI in the future or something similar.

    Yet the TX650 is still good enough to SLI on, if you're willing to use Molex -> 6pin adapters.
    Which is awkward, but not unpossible.

    I'd personally just wait for the HD7000-series or the GeForce 600-series and buy one of them.
