    Agreed - what kind of rig are you building?

    Loved reading on Anandtech about a boutique system build with a GTX580 and a 2700K overclocked (fairly poorly - way too much voltage on the CPU) with only have a Seasonic X-660 80 Plus Gold 660W Modular PSU. Most people spend way too much on a too powerful PSU and then spend more on electricity b/c other than gaming they are at only 10-20% load.

    Ouch, too late with my post - 3 7970's - a beast!
  6. Of the two, the rosewill will deliver more power, 108a on the +12v rails, vs only 82a on the kingwin.

    But, since you want a no compromise psu, I suggest the SeaSonic X-1250 1250W gold, currently with a 15% promo:

  7. 3-7970's would be a complete waste for gaming. There is no game out there that needs even two of them.
  8. duh i want a pc that will last for 2-4 years
