Hye everyone.. Just a quick question here.. Im going to build a full set computer soon and I don't even know how much Watts(maybe model too) I need for my spec build...

Mobo- EVGA x58 ftw3
Processor - Intel i7-930
cpucooler-Corsair H100 Extreme Performance
case- Rosewill thor v2 ATX fulltower
memory- Sector 7 6gb ddr3 1600MHz
gpu- 2xMSI GTX570 Twin Frozr III (or maybe 3 in the future :D )

and obviously, im going to overclock to the very2 extreme performance within stability..



Thanks in advance :D

sandybridge?like heat sink?? i just wanna try with water cooling this time..hmm, about the processor, my brother gave it to me, and its about a year purchased.. I dont have enough money to buy i7-2600k, if only I can step up my i7-930 to i7-2600k, i will definitely do that.. :D

I agree with amuffin, with the money you're spending i'd go with Sandy Bridge.

As for wattage you'll need a solid PSU that's at least 850w-1000w for 2x 570's if you're planning to get a third 570 in the future then i'd pick up a 1200w unit.
