    So does that mean i should stick with the 600 or go for a lower one? Also any personal suggestions on PSUs?
    Also if i plan on overclocking down the road will i need more power?

    would work well , and is a great quality unit

    If you may add another graphics card later on then a 650 watt unit will let you SLI two GTX 550 ti's comfortably
    This Corsair TX 650

    is a good unit for $85

    If you are not going to add another graphics card ,or over clock, you can save about $55 on your mb and not lose any performance

  4. Thank for the input!
    Just making sure, with these MBs i should be able to get away with no sound card right?
