I'm building the following:

Asus Rampage III Extreme
Intel i7 950
Gigabyte Radeon HD 5970
Kingston KHX2000C9AD3T1K3/6GX
2 HDD's
1 DVD Drive
10 120mm fans

Just curious what the recommended wattage would be for this sort of build? I don't intend on overclocking.

A quality 650w or more unit from Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, PC Power and Cooling or XFX ( ^ link above) should handle that fine.

I'm not trying to be a d1ck, but if you were not planning to OC WHY did you get the Rampage III?????

As far as PSU goes, a QUALITY 650W XFX, Seasonic, Antec, Corsair,etc will be fine. HOWEVER, if you plan to CrossFire or overclock later get a quality 750-800W.

Hahah, yeah it was a bad move and I wont be making that mistake in the future. I've even had to RMA the board due to bent CPU pins, which will probably cost me a further $50~ to fix.

Appreciate the responses guys, it's going to save me a bit of cash.
