So I am planning to upgrade my current PC and i was just wondering whether what the current PSU I had was good enough or not, currently i have a - Coolermaster eXtreme Power Plus 700W

Here is what im planning to get.

Mobo: MSI Z87-G45
CPU: i5-4670K
RAM: G.Skill Sniper 8Gb 2133Mhz (OCed)
Video Card: 2 x MSI GTX 760
Cooler: Corsair H80i

Im planning to OC my CPU once i can get the cooler and i also plan to get a 2nd monitor.

Any help is appreciated Thanks.

That is a very poor power supply , they don't live up to the specs that are posted on them.

I would go with a 750w for your specs.


Seasonic made unit below would be a good fit.

I live in Australia so that PSU is $139 for me, i can get an Antec HCG-750W for $134 would you recommend that instead? also would my current PSU be alright to use without OCing the CPU and only 1 Video Card until i can get the new PSU?

Yes the Antec is a high quality PSU . Buy it.

I wouldn't overclock with that cooler master , don't risk your components.

Cooler master overstates the specs on the PSU's , don't risk it.
