Hi, i am planning to get the MK III 1200w instead of my Corsiar TX850M because the MK III is more silent.

Should i do this? Am i overlooking something important (coil whine, to much electrical noice because i use a low wattage)

Specs:
I7 3770K
Asus maximus V Formula
Gtx 680

You don't need that much power for a single 680 on an 1155 system, but when it comes to power supplies, the MK III 1200W has one of the best reviews I've seen:

I trust this site entirely when it comes to PSU reviews. It has never steered me wrong.

The only reason the MK III didn't get a 10 is for its semi-modular configuration. Also, if you read the summary it the review above, you'll see they've taken care of any noise issue.

Should you do this? Only if you need 1200W now or plan to use that much in the future on that system. If not, a SeaSonic G Series 550-Watt or 650-Watt would be sufficient. Go with the 650W if you'll be overclocking the CPU and GPU otherwise the 550W will be just fine for that system.

"Low wattage"? 1200 W.? Sounds like overkill to me. For a single GPU, 650 W. should be more than enough.
