Hey im going to be doing my first ever gaming build and i dont know what psu I would need for the parts I have chose

CPU: i5 2500k - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MoBo: ASRock Z68 Extreme 4 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: MSI Twin Frozr II GTX 560ti http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So yeah if anyone could suggest a good power supply or even the wattage I would need, and also is the GPU okay? Or could anyone suggest a better one at around the same price

Okay thanks for the reply, would i need more than 650W if i was to SLI the 560ti? And if so how long do you think a single 560ti will last before being outdated and needing SLI to keep up ...

Also would http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... be good? Or could i manage with less RAM?

Buy the biggest QUALITY PSU you can afford.

I hope that what you said is not exactly what you mean.

I can afford to put 1200 watt PSU's in all my computers - even the ones pulling 300 - 350 watts out of the PSU.

That doesn't mean that I am going to.
