Hello i have recently gotten a Corsair enthusiast 750W PSU and i was planning on getting these parts for my new PC

i5 2500k

8gigs Corsair vengeance

EVGA gtx 560 ti

z68 motherboard


Dvd drive

1 LED fan

will the PSU i mentioned be enough for these specs ? especially for the gtx because i plan on playing my games such as Crysis, BF3 and Skyrim on high settings or should i return it and get a corsair GS800W PSU ? also is it going to make a huge noise if the 750W manages to power up my specs ?

will run it no problem

i am running a 2600k at 5ghz

16gb Corsair vengeance

P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 motherboard

overclocked gtx570

4 hard drives and 1 ssd

1 dvd drive

4 case fans

and some other bits like the h80 cooler pump and 2 fans

all from the same psu--Corsair enthusiast 750W PSU --and no the psu doesnt make a huge noise

if you want to overclock the 2500k get a decent aftermarket cooler for 4.5ghz or so

Wow your PC is killer, thanks for the information, i was worried that if i tried to run those parts with just a 750W psu it would blow up and take everything with it but now i can rest at ease.

you could probably run 2 gtx560ti in sli from that psu

so you still have upgrade potential in the future with the psu

Not probably run two 560 Ti but definitively. Good PSU.

definitely not planning on running two gtx 560ti, since i'm only 17 and only get paid minimum wage i'm on a budget and can't afford two graphics cards, but i might in the future though. right now i just want to run one gtx card.

You can reuse some components from your current computer too, for example if you have an 560 Ti.
