I am buying an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z motherboard and plan to game with it. I have a FX-9590 cpu and a R9 290 gpu. I will in the future expand to crossfire gpus so I want pleanty of available power. I also have 7 fans (some140mm and 200mm) and a cpu liquid cooler that comes with the cpu.

What power supply will have the connectors I need and what are the specific connectors I am looking for?

I'm loving the responses, but how do I know that these will have all the correct connections? This is my first build from scratch and I am trying to learn how to know for sure. On the newegg pics it shows a couple connectors and the owners guide I downloaded list a bunch...

Best solution

1000W Supernova has more than enough.
