I was going to buy a Seasonic M12II 650W Bronze power supply, but if that is overkill for a system like this, than I would go for a Seasonic SSR-550W G Series power supply. What would you advise???

I will not be a adding a second video card, nor will I be overclocking. Just simple computing plus a little gaming.

Thank you.

Thank you for the fast reply. Sorry, I forgot something. I will add a second hard drive (my current 5200 rpm 500 GB hard drive) to that build, along with my Hauppauge AVR-950 tv card. I doubt that will change your advice, but I wanted to include it to be complete.

The Seasonic G 550w is about the best power supply you can buy for less than $100. Great unit and an updated platform from the S12/M12. The G is also modular and 80 Plus Gold certified vs 80 Plus Bronze for the M12.

As said above 550 watts will allow you to upgrade to any single GPU including a GTX 680/HD 7970.
