  1. It will all work fine , but [ theres always a but ]

    You wont need a 750 watt psu .
    A 550 watt psu is more appropriate , and even then you could spend the money you save on a more powerful quadro and still be well inside the power draw.

    Unless you intend to overclock then just buy the 2500 without the K

    The caviar black is a good drive , but the samsung F3 is better . Id use two . One for back ups , or just set them up in raid 1 for real time redundancy

    The case wouldnt be my first choice either . Gaming cases are usually noisier than I'd want in an office . This is personal choice but I'd probably replace the psu amd case with

  2. Yeah a 550 min or a 650 max is all you need.

    maxxed out its going to draw under 200 watts

    even a 300 watt psu would suffice , and a 500 watt unit give over heads to run more powerful graphics or a bunch of extra hard drives
