I'm ordering:
I5-3750k
ASRock Z77 Extreme4
XFX DD 7870 GHz edition (will add another at later date)
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
Already have:
Scythe Ultra Kraze 120mm case fans x5
Crucial 8gb CT51264BA1339 ram
Patriot Pryro 60gb SSD
Older Western Digital 5400RPM 500gb Sata drive

I'm looking for a modular power supply around $100. From what I understand I'll need a 750w power supply. Anyone have any recommendations? I won't be overclocking anything.

I don't recommend the second choice. I had the same PSU except 850W and it was LOUD. The thing would ramp up to basically 80% fan at around 30% load.


Surprised to hear that. Seasonic is considered one of the top PSU manufacturers. I use one and it has been fantastic. Guess sometimes people can have an issue, but overall the company is at the top.

Well, I'm thinking along the lines of the only reason they are the best is because they cool their components extremely quickly by making it very loud.

I have no concern over noise. The Scythe cooling fans are 46dBa
