Solved

Need help with picking a PSU for my build

This is the build i want to make:
Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Asus Maximus VI Extreme ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-2400 Memory
Samsung 840 EVO 500GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3GB TWIN FROZR Video Card
NZXT Phantom (White) ATX Full Tower Case

The estimated power needed is 445W but of course i want at least 650/750 W to be safe and perhaps for a future SLI

I would like some propositions (Price Range £80/£120 - $130-$200)
My favourite companies (Corsair, Zalman, CoolMaster, OCZ)

    That is a good psu, but I think platinum is a little overkill for your build. That psu is 169... I think you are way overpaying. If you must have a corsair, I would recommend the HX series and save yourself a few bucks.
  4. Sorry if my first response was hard to follow.
  5. Night Owl, Thanks for a suggestion.

    I do not have to have a corsair but Platinum just seemed like a safe way to keep my money from breaking.

    I did consider the HX (GOLD Series) and might even get it

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with platinum, it is safe and clean power. I just don't think that it is necessary, a gold or silver will do very well too. Hopefully I could help out :D Good luck with your decision!
