    Never purchase your psu before you purchase your vid cards(s). Now you are limited to the cards that psu can push.
  3. I bought the Psu along with the case due to it being massively discounted as a combo. I dont plan on running ridiculously overpowered videocards so I dont forsee it being a huge deal. I got both the 600t corsair case and 650watt corsair psu for 214 shipped. So I saved quite a bit on the psu.
