I am just about done with my build but people kept telling me to change my PSU as they said it was a bit overkill but since it was a low price I figured it was a good deal (I dont know much about power supplies). So i figured I would start a new thread to find out which powersupply I should get here is the link to all my parts that I plan to run in the near future http://pcpartpicker.com/p/mYqYLk just the motherboard is the wrong one. I just put a motherboard in there to hold space the one I am getting is the ASRock z97m Pro4. If you could please suggest a power supply or if you think i should keep the on i picked just tell me. The other power supply I had in mind was this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... as you can see I want either a semi or full modular power supply, either will be great.

Actually I would just keep it with that high budget build. Then you will not have to upgrade the PSU if you plan to CrossFire the 280X. You are overclocking too so the extra head room will be great, to be on the safe side. Just my opinion on what I would do in your shoes. :)

ok but even when it comes down to the one I have in the list or the other one I added in the thread would you still pick the original one or would you pick the other? (Also dont know if you noticed or not but I cant run sli or crossfire with this mobo and the case would be a little to small for my liking and the heat would be bad, unless you were talking about using the power supply for future builds were I might use sli/crossfire)

Oh...Well then it all depends on what you think that you will do later. Go with SeaSonic PSU if you think that you will stick to only a single GPU upgrade. Sorry, skimmed through the build so fast, didn't see that board was mATX. Is there a particular reason that you went with such a small case for such a high-end build, if I might ask?

In my opinion, I would go with a NZXT Phantom Full Tower for same price and a Z97 Killer from AsRock. Then you could definitely CrossFire and have good air flow. Just throwing ideas. I'm sure you have your reasons for mini case. :)

My main reason for the size is just becuse im in college and space can be a big issue here so I didnt want some behemoth taking up all what little space is in this damn room. Thankyou for your help though, very much appreciated :)

DON'T LOSE THE MODULAR CABLES!! The 750 Watts will be good for the 280x in case you need to overclock.

I have a XFX CORE 750W running an A6-5400k and a 260x 2GB so there is no such thing as overkill lol
