Hello I am after some advice on the power supply i am looking to power my computer and also allow for overclocking cpu.
Specs.
1x Amd 1045t x6 core cpu
1x ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX Motherboard
2x Geforce 550 gtx running as sli
2x 500g hard drives
1x disk drive
1x h60 water cooling

I want to run all this plus overclock my cpu from 2.7 to 3.6 g will have to raise the volts to roughly 1.45. Thanks and my price range is $80 - $160. So yeh what are your thoughts?

If you want a lifetime warranty you should go for Corsair TX750M. Bought it a week ago and is working sweet until know

Check out the NZXT Hale90 series, I have the 650w model and love it, very well made quiet and gold plus. They are a little pricey on newegg right now but I paid about 100 for mine on sale from newegg a little over 6 months ago. The unit is made by super flower and has a really good review on johnnyguru.com

I would reccomend changing most of your build if its not set in stone yet.

going with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... will save you $50 over the motherboard you chose

550 GTX's are aprox $120 a piece, SLI's drawbacks outway its potential improvements at this pricepoint and should be replaced by a single $560 TI at $229 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., with a $30 mail in rebate thats $40 savings over what you already picked.

by going for a single graphics card you won't require as much power draw, which will lead to energy savings, for your PSU i would reccomend an Antec Earthwats 650W for $75, which would give you the oportunity to upgrade to a 2nd 560ti later.

As for your hard drives you should really consider a SSD in the 128gb+ range and a single 1 tb drive

Lets change a few things!

i3 2120
ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 or ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 if you got the money
GeForce GTX 560 Ti
WD 2TB
64GB M4
CM Hyper 212 Evo

Wait for Keplar and the 7800 series. It'll be worth it.

A List of Recommended PSUs
I like the TX650 V2 and X650
