1200 watt psu is overkill

Ok I'm a pc gaming noob and have used this site as my roadmap to making my gaming rig. Could you give me a PSU that is great for the parts I've listed please?

If your looking to sli then the corsair 860i is a a good psu, or you can get a 700watt ish psu. Just because theoretically you can run it on 600 watts, a 700-750 watt psu allows head room

Sorry for noob question but "sli" as in two graphics cards? For now it'll just be the one gtx 780Ti. But down the line I might add another one.
I'm looking to run most games on ultra or high settings. Hoping that after tax I can hit a $3000 budget.. Is that possible for the gaming settings I'd want?

You should definitely hit ultra on a 780ti

sli means 2+ nvidia cards

crossfire means 2+ amd cards

Thanks Ed for such quick responses and the help MUCH appreciated. I've edited the list to include the 860i PSU. I've basically went off of this site and Frankieonpcin1080p's setup lol.
If you see anywhere I've made a mistake or complete overkill as you've said could you mention it? Although keep in mind I'd like to use this for gaming for at least two years IF possible*

That is a semi-setup

its hard to say the price of a 780ti... so i went overkill and put a titan in there (so it'll be less than that)

change the ram to (2x8gb) so in the future by some miracle games need 16+gb of ram it allows you to add two more sticks in there


I added some extra fans in there, as i like my rig as quiet as possible and can vouch for them, but they can also be added down the line

Awesome thanks! Bookmarked that page and according to nvidia 780Ti will be priced at $700.

Best solution
