okay so here are my choices

* 700 Watts - CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gaming 80 Plus Power Supply 30$ mail in rebate
* 750 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply - Quad SLI Ready [+5] 10$ mail in rebate
* 750 Watts - Thermaltake TR2 RX Modular 80 Plus PSU - PN: TRX-750M [-17] 30$ mail in rebate
I really really want the 30$ mail in rebate. This build will stay at a single card setup so im not worried about SLI or CRossfire. I was wondering should i get the corsair or coolermaster instead of the thremaltake. are thermeltakes good?

Why not just get a 2500K, save $100 and OC it 200mhz? That would be totally safe.

and if you are sticking with a 2600 and not OCing then buy the 2600 not the 2600k
since the only difference is that you can OC the k model

None of your power supplies are appropriate .
A good quality 500 watt unit will be fine , a 650 watt unit will give you plenty of head room even if you were to add a second graphics card

In gaming, you'll never see an advantage with the 2600k

Liquid cooling and no OC ? The SB processors can't even begin to strain the better air coolers, making liquid cooling a waste of time and effort.

The PSU's all have enough wattage, they are just not ones I'd buy. The Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 gets a 9.5 jonnyguru performance rating but it costs $95 after MIR

The XFX Core edition gets the same rating from jonnyguru bit is $10 cheaper for the 750 watter acfter $30 rebate

and $5 cheaper for the 850 watter, making this the hands down choice ($30 rebate)

PSU's run most efficient at 50% load meaning you'll pay less for electricity at the higher efficiency level.

Yes, I'm a novice that's why my ID is tyro1. That aside, if it's not too late the 750 Watts - Corsair CMPSU-750TXV2 80 Plus Power Supply is your best bet, and you a $10 rebate.(it's a tier 2 psu)
The Thermaltake TR2 RX Modular 80 Plus PSU will at the least, burn up if you go with 2 vid cards, and at the worst, take out your mobo & possibly your 2 vid cards as well. Not a tough choice for a$30 rebate. (it's a tier 5 psu)
The 700 Watts - CoolerMaster Silent Pro Gaming 80 Plus Power Supply w/$30 rebate is 2nd best choice.(it's a tier 3 psu)

See http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx for power supply ratings, and check out what is said about tier 5 psu's.
Also, see http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermaltake-TR2-... for a real eye opener.

I am sorry, I should have said that the following is just my opinion, and nothing more than that.
