Do you have plans to upgrade sooner rather than later? How much can you spend? Does it have to be cooler master branded? (I like a couple other brands better). Answer these to give us a better idea of what you can get.

I want to upgrade in the coming week or so. I am willing to spend around  100-125 US$ on the PSU. It may not be of Cooler Master. Right now, any suggestion is welcomed, if the mentioned PSUs would be able to deliver with 85% efficiency of their rated power. Here, more importantly I want to know, PSU of how much wattage will be able to feed a system with the specs I have stated?! :)

Thermaltake 750W Gold rated PSU. Should give you enough room if you want to add another 650 to run in SLI if you wanted. 119.99 on Newegg atm.

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. The specs on this, reads really well for the price! :D

Btw, what do you think about a PSU of 600W rating?! Will it not be able to juice out the power requirements?!  As I have one, lying around!

Just depends on how well its built and what certification it has. It could work. I just went with the 750 for expandability later on. I'm a huge believer in buying the best you can get for budget when buying PSUs since they can last though multiple builds.
