Hello members,
It is my first build and I am not sure which PSU to choose. The system components are: 4770k, 2x MSI Hawk GTX 760 runnin' in SLI, Asus Sabertooth z87 or Maximus VI Hero (I haven't deciced yet which one), Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 1600MHZ, casual CD/DVD combo, 2x WD 1TB Caviar Red, SSD (haven't deciced yet which one), CM Hyper EVO 212, 8x Fans with LEDs, sound card in the near future and I will use my current case which is nothing special. Shall I get CM V1000w or CM V850w will handle it? I will overclock as much as I can. Thank you for your responses!

Thank you for the quick response! Isn't CM V850 better than the one you suggested? And are you sure that an 850w PSU handle all these stuff? I will have 2 hdds, 1 SSD, CPU cooler and ~8 fans?

Yes it will. And I don't recommend CM's PSUs. They might be really good on some other things, like cases... but on PSUs, they are often lying on the wattage that they labbel. So I would definitively rather get the one that I adviced you.

I just checked my country's shops and this PSU isn't available. Is Corsair TX850 v2 a good choice instead of the one you suggested?
