Exclamation PSU for FM2

could somebody let me know what kind of PSU I would need for an A10 7850K, I figured a 500w coolermaster would do but just wondered if it was overkill. I have no idea how an integrated GPU differs from one going through the PCI-e as far as power requirements go. cheers.

500 watts should be plenty with no dedicated GPU and a few hdd's with A10 7850k.

Quality PSU is more important than Watts.

Also a10 7850k requires FM2+ motherboard not FM2.

yeah i was kind of wondering if anybody's running it with ~200w in an itx case kind of thing. if its 95 watt + RAM + 2.5" hdd really can't be that much more than 150w required.
