Neweggs PSU calculator says roughly 700 watts, so I'd stay within the 800-900 watt range.

Corsair HX850 is a good choice.

Hello Miks1890;

I can't find any reviews on that XILENCE Redwing 800 R3 to confirm its a good PSU.
What other PSUs in the 650W-750W range are available in your area?
April 20, 2012 8:12:34 PM

what about:
corsair gs800
cooler master gx750
corsair tx650

Coolermaster, not a really loved brand for reliability and performance.

The GS800, sure.
The TX650, that's what I'm using and it only has 2 PCIe connections, you need 4.

the GS800 is well reviewed and probably deliver the best power of the three listed

The new Corsair GS800 is a terrific power supply for its price point, and we highly recommend it if you are looking for an 800 W unit with a good cost/benefit ratio.

Nice motherboard choice.

A little over @ 77 but looking good. CORSAIR TX 750W V2 (CMPSU-750TXV2 EU)

CORSAIR GS PSU 800W @ 71.00 Ls is also looking good.
April 20, 2012 9:06:38 PM

then which should i take?
April 20, 2012 9:28:28 PM

Of those listed on the site I'd be inclined to recommend:

ANTEC HCG 750W, the OCZ 750W ZT, the CORSAIR GS 800W , and the CORSAIR TX V2 750W

My personal preference would be to go with the Antec, however the OCZ and Corsairs would be good as well.

Corsair GS 800W or Corsair TX 750W V2 would be fine. You can pick the one you like.

You've been given lots of solid choices, you're just going to have to pick one :) . Pick the one that you think looks nifty....you won't go wrong with any of the above on the last few posts.
