  1. I dont think i'm going to sli so should i get an other psu?
  2. I would downsize my psu and maybe get something modular like this own down below.

    OCZ Voeding Fatal1ty Series 550WATT

    Also you have the 2500 listed yet you have an after market heat sink...you will need the 2500K in order to over clock.


    Processor Intel Core i5 2500K, s1155
  3. I'm not going to overclock but i want a quiet heat sink. I'm going to buy my stuff at a store that is close to my home and the prices are high. If i say 900euros that means maybe 950-975 at that store but the service is super good. I'm a loyal customer.
    So if i buy the 2500k it wil cost me like 250 or higher maybe.
    Oh and thank you for translating it and i like the psu.
