alright so ill make this short and sweet. i just dont want to be under powered, based on this system what psu would be best.

Rosewill thor V2 case
Asus Maximus E-ATX p67 board
Intel I7 2600k (it will be overclocked)
Nvidia GTX 580
750 gb HD WD caviar
Intel Liquid Cooler
G Skill Ripjaws 8GB (2 sticks)
and an LG All in one Blu ray, DVD, etc..


right now i have an 1000w Rosewill Modular PSU selected.

would that be enough in case later on i want to improve the system with say SLI or Crossfire. i want room for improvement, but i dont want to overkill the system.

i was thinking of getting the Corsair 1050 (onl[y because they dont have 1000w i dont believe)

is OCZ reliable? as far as PSU goes that is.

You haven't bough the rosewill yet right?

For Sli'd GTX580's 1000w should be just fine, but you're cutting it close, don't expect to go crazy on OC's, and rosewill PSU's are mediocre at best. I'd go for something like this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Or the corsair 1050 will also be fine.

well i want consistent parts, thus why alot of my things are name brand and not some knock off stuff (ie asus, corsair..etc) i try to base my selections on reviews from verified owners, and youtube.

No matter what brand it is there will always be failures (as an example I have had two RMA's with ASUS) when I said consistent I was saying not all their products in the past have not been top quality but this one is. User reviews especially at newegg is nothing to go by other wise you would be buying a rosewill!
