Hi im planning to get a xfx rx 460 but im not very sure about what psu to buy ( i currently have a 350 be quiet! one)
So here are my specs:
Amd a8-6600k overclocked at 4.2Ghz
12gbs of ram ddr3 1600
Asus a88xm-a
120 gb kingston ssd
1tb Wd Blue hard disk
Usb 2.0 device
Dvd reader/burner
Sd card reader
5 fans
I was thinking about a 650 watt corsair one , since i wanna have some space for future upgrades such as another hard drive.
What are your suggestions?
Thanks for the help.

As long as you don't get a second GPU, a good 500w psu should be good enough. Hell, even 450w. I'd recommend getting 500w-600w though.

Coolermaster's calculator says you only need 256W for that system.

I would say, if your current one is of decent quality, just use that! You can also get a power outlet power meter and check for yourself.
That 650W PSU that you were looking at will give you pretty big room for upgrades. Though, keep in mind that a hard drive won't take more than 10W, so unless you're planning a major upgrade of the CPU and GPU, 450W or 500W will be plenty.

500w, maybe 600 as the price difference isn't huge so why not?
