Solved

Need help with my setup.. a few couple thinks that i really am doubting..

Hi guys, not sure if this setup will work with the stated PSU

Msi b85 g43 gaming + i5-4570
Gskills ripjaws X 1600mhz 2x4gb kit red
WD 1TB SATA 6GB/s, 16MB Cache, 7200RPM
Sapphire R9 290 TRI-X 4GB GDDR5 OC
Seasonic g650 650w 80+ gold modular psu
NZXT Phantom 410 or Arc midi R2(Need your opinion on this guys, and can the stated gpu even fit the Phantom case?)
Samsung ODD
Windows 7 home premium 64bit oem
XIGMATEK Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk
And 2 other CPU Fans like CM sickle flow (Red, if you have other recommendations, do tell me, I appreciate it :))

Now what i'm really afraid of is, if I need to change my psu to 100w more?(750W)
Can it really support my power hungry GPU, cpu, aftermarket cpu cooler, stockfans PLUS the 2 other fans that I will fit in my case? Also does connecting my pc to a TV instead of a monitor actually consumes more power?

More about setup couple thinks doubting
  1. Your Budget?
  2. this is the total system power draw of your gpu in a more power hungry setup

    it draws 500 watts your setup should be some where lower than that
    your psu pushes 648w on its 12v rail
    you have more than enough power fr that gpu
    and seasonic makes some of the best psu's

    Uh no budget in particular, also most of the things here are confirmed, only the PSU and the CPU case.
    My budget for the case is about $100
    PSU its only a matter of upgrading or not

    Oh, I've always thought that the 500W is purely only consumed by the grpahics card, so its consume by the whole system?

    yes it states it above the graph that it is total system power consumption
    you will be fine with the psu you have
    if you havent purchased it yet you could save some cash and go with this

    May I ask if I actuall do put a few fans including the stock fans with led, how much power do they roughly consume? I was actually thinking of liquid cooling, do you think its possible?
  7. water cooling and fans wit or without led's draw very little power with what your talking about you would be drawing an around an extra 40w max so its fine
