-To Zerk: Well, I really can afford whatever I need, I am not out to spend on unneeded things however. Even if I could afford 1200-watt PSU, I wont get one if I don't need it, thats how I do things so yeah. Anyway I was going to go with a 700-800-watt psu incase I want to SLI, but thanks for the replies. I actually thought it would be much higher in the beginning.

Sorry for double post, but while my topic is still up in the "CPU" sections, I would like to ask, will a Core i7 920 bottleneck my computer in anyway, will it bottleneck games or anything or will it be perfect and will handle everything I throw at it??

Stick with the 920 and get a quality PSU like the Antec 850 Signiture Series or the Corsair 850w.

I already decided to go with a cooler-master 800 watt.
-any comments on the processor? Is it powerful enough to handle stressful games and apps like crysis and company of heroes.

-Thank You for any comments.
