after reviewing the specs for your system I feel comfortable saying any standard atx power supply will work as long as it is 400 watt or better.

 

 The most important things to look for are wattage, in your case you will need a 400 watt or better psu

Dimensions, will it fit in your case.

connectors, if you have a 4 pin cpu power or 8 pin. In your case I believe it is a 4 pin. Also sata connectors for your hdd. Lastly if your gpu requires extra juice from the psu you need to make sure the replacement has that connector as well which in your case I believe it is one 6 pin pcie power connector.

 

So to recap, your new psu should be;

atx form factor

At least 400watt or better

4 pin cpu connector, 6 pin PCI-e connector (for video card), sata connectors, 24 pin mobo connector.

 

All those other specs are not really relevant since most atx power supplies are well within tolerances for modern systems.

 

I hope this helps you.

Thank you. I am actually replacing the GPU and Power Supply, possibly with a Radeon 7770 & unknown PSU.

 

1) How many watt PSU would you recommend for these specs and for the ability to use it in a future computer with better specs a few years from now? 2) And what amps would I need?

3) What GPU would you recommend to be able to run any game out right now at highest settings with 30 fps?

 

SPECS:

 

- GPU 7770 ? at the minimum

- Q9300 CPU TDP of either 95W or 72W?

- slot fan 9 watts

- 2 case fans at ? watts

- Motherboard MAX TDP 19 watts

- internal TV Tuner (probably will remove to fit in GPU)

- memory card reader & lots of usb slots at ? watts

- IR blaster card at ? watts

- Not sure if I listed everything using watts

 

As far as I can tell I have to get a single slot GPU to be able to keep my tv tuner connected. Unfortunately I will have to remove my tv tuner to fit in a 2 slot GPU.

If your wanting to play the latest games on the highest settings at 30FPS, i suggest getting a more powerful card like the 7870 and a solid 500W power supply like this has plenty of power.

Will 500 watts really be enough for everything? What GPU manufacturer do you recommend? What about amps?

Yes, 500W will be enough. For GPU manufacturer, i usually go for either Asus, Gigabyte, MSI or Sapphire. No need to worry about amps as there is more then enough.

+1 to killerx525

 

I prefer Gigabyte for its excellent cooling solutions  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125418

So 500 watts will be enough in 3-5 years when I move the PSU to a brand new PC with a high end CPU and GPU?

3 to 5 years from now, we won't be able to tell the power requirements of that generation's high-end CPU and GPU.  We can't really future-proof on something we don't have a glimpse of yet - they might invent a new more powerful GPU that uses less power yet is incredibly more powerful.  However, looking at the trend - take the GK110, nVidian's new weapon of choice, the TDP is 250W, and the suggested PSU is 600w, we can see that the more powerful the video card, the more powerful the power supply you'll need.

I see. Can you recommend a good power supply manufacturer?

SeaSonic is the best manufacturer for PSU's.  XFX, Antec (Earthwatts series, Neo Eco series, HCG series, True Power series), Corsair (TV-X2 series, HX series, AX series) are all great.

Agreed. I concur. I have had experience with all of these except the xfx psu's and can confirm that seasonic, antec, and the corsair hx and ax series are the best made and longest lasting psu's available.

Newegg indicates I require 509 watts and that only includes these parts:

CPU

Motherboard

7870 GPU you recommend

RAM

Optical Drive

Hard Drive

 

DOES NOT INCLUDE: 

 

- slot fan 9 watts

- 2 case fans at ? watts

- internal TV Tuner (probably will remove to fit in GPU)

- memory card reader & lots of usb slots at ? watts

- IR blaster card at ? watts

Those wattage are totally inaccurate, your system in reality would not draw that much wattage at load. To give you an example, my personal rig which is in my sig, draws at maximum wattage of 546W despite having a 750W where i could gotten away with a 650W power supply.
