I need some PSU suggestions. I am planning on buying the following i7 rig next week and I am going to be using my 9600GT until the end of August. After that I plan on buying either a GTX 275 or a GTX 285 and using the 9600 GT as a physics card (Possibly add a second GTX card in the future for SLI). I currently own an EarthWatts 430 but I don't want to risk my rig with it. Will my current PSU be fine until I get a new GPU?

I only have a few requirements:

UNDER $180

ASUS P6T LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor - Retail

OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK - Retail

Thanks in advance. I appreciate everyones advice.

Thermaltake - Modular

PCP&C - Not modular but good price for item


Antec - Modular

The PCP&C really catches my eye, but its your choice :kaola:
