    620 would be fine I believe. Even the 550 (or 520) would probably be suffice.

    You're probably not even hitting 300w of power right there. Are you OCing at all? If so, maybe a little over 300w. You're perfectly fine with the 620HX. I'm running a beefier rig than this on the same PSU. Plus you get the capability of modular, unlike the other unit....assuming you see that as a plus.

    620HX. You'll be a happy bunny.

    Otherwise, I'd go for a PCP&C Silencer 750.

    None of them. HX520 will be fine.

    Hx620w hands down.

    that system is easy for 620w, even 520w should be able to handle a quad core and GTX.
