Question about a new power supply, I need to know if it this will work for me.

I currently have a 600 watt power supply. I am looking at getting a 750 watt Modular supply. For better air flow and less clutter in the case, with the ability to SLI in the future. Here is the link to supply I am looking at

  1. 600W is enough the GPU and stock speeds on FX.
  2. you already have all those parts or are you planning on buying them all?
  3. Another thing, that PSU have poor quality, get this one instead: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-110b20850v1 (its better for SLI), or you can also go with http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-110b20750vr .

    Thank you, I was looking at that EVGA 850 watt you posted. That will allow me to do what I am planning to do in the future? As for the hardware list that is the hardware, I am currently running.

    No problem.

    The 750w version will allow you to run SLI, but I think you should get the 850w version if you really want to go SLI, so you can have more room to manage with. From the calculations I made the minimum is 690w, but some GPUs are overclocked so they require more power than regular ones.
