    Final review and advice to choose wise my power supply

    Hi well this is my final build

    - CASE: cooler master storm enforcer

    - Power supply: cooler master GX 750 W

    - Processor: AMD FX 8150 Black edition

    - Processor cooling: H100

    - Ram: crosshair vengeance 4x4(16GB) 1.6 GHZ

    - Motherboard: Asus formula V ROG

    - GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked

    - Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal

    - seagate 3TB 7200RPM sata 6 GB/S

    - Kingston 19-in-1 USB 2.0 Flash Memory Card Reader

    - in 2 months i will buy a second EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked


    so my first fear was that all this stuff don't fit in the case but now i know it fit well

    but im not sure how much wattage does my pc need :/

    specially because the GPU is superclocked

    i will buy the GPU from this page http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

    i chat with amazon and they said me the minimum PSU wattage requirements is 550 Watt

    so 2 x 550= 1100 plus the other stuff how much do i will need?



    thanks.
    sorry for my english

    Alot of times I have read here in these Forums is that you should have a minimum of an 850W PSU if you are going an SLI setup...if you are planning on doing a lot of OC'ing, maybe a more powerful PSU even again, especially to handle your H100 also.

    yes, i also see a lot of threat :/, but im not pretty sure, well i'm not pretend to overclock the cpu, the gpu is already clocked
    so how many do i need?

    sorry, know i see wattage is not the same of watts

    750 is fine?

    Considering you are also going to run a H100 for cooling, go for at least an 850W. unless someone here with more knowledge than myself will suggest otherwise

    Hi there!

    I think a 850 watt power supply would be fine with what you have listed. Just get a good one... a quality 850 will be better than a cheapo 1000. And remember, the max amps on 12 volt rail is the important thing. Not all 850s will be created equal!

    Oh, and to get a bit pedantic wattage does not exist....its power!
