Which PSU?

I'm planning out a water cooled PC with:
i7 930
GTX 470 in SLi, EVGA FTW edition (here)
3 Stick DDR3 RAM

I'm thinking maybe a 1000W PSU if it is necessary, got any suggestions on which one I should go with? Rosewill or Corsair? Money is no objection.

    i would say that if money was no object get the Corsair AX850 (the AX1200 is way too much power for a build like this)
  2. Yeah if money is no object in the psu department you shouldnt even be mentioning rosewill beside corsair. The pc power and cooling one is cool but why would anyone bother with a non modular psu? I cringed at the pic of it showing all those cables and how much of a nightmare it would be to hide them.

    Go with a Corsair.
  3. Corsair and Seasonic are two brands that have a reputation for high quality power supplies that consistently earn high marks in technical reviews. They are reliable, stable, and come with a 5 year warranty. Some of the newer models come with a 7 year warranty.
  4. are you guys sure that a 850W is enough? the two GPUs are OCed.
  5. phoenix777 - Yes. You should not have any problems.

    Take a look at this power supply guide which specifically includes 470 SLI overclocked:
