Well, as I was getting ready to purchase my items I was reviewing the compatiablity. I then remebered that I downgraded some of my parts to get a cheaper price, but I didn't think about the PSU so I upgraded(or downgraded) to the Kingwin Lazer 550W(I used to have a TX650W CORSAIR in my basket). The review on this PSU is very good, but I don't know if it will be enough to power my system.

Here is my list of components

Processor: i5 2500K SB 3.3 GHz 95W
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series (2 * 4GB)
Graphics Card: ASUS HD7770 1GB GDDR5
Hard Drive: 2 7200 RPM 500 GB, 1 7200 RPM 1 TB
Case: Switch 810 (Includes 4 140mm fans and a fan hub(Molex)

PSU: Kingwin Lazer 550W (platnum efficiency)

I used the eXtreme Power Supply Calc. and got 338W, I will be upgrading to a 7870 and I got 425W. I WILL NOT BE OVERCLOCKING. If anyone can help me out that would be very appriciated!

you won't break 350w gaming with the AMD 7870. you will be fine with the kingwin, it received a 10 in performance from jonnyguru

Thanks for the graph! it helps! But, jw, If I had a crossfire 7870 I would have to upgrade my PSU? I will plan on crossfiring in about 2-3 years, after I get down on the computer building.

what is your PSU budget because the kingwin lazer is not cheap ($150 in the USA) and you can easily get a corsair 750w TV v2 for less then that. even the corsair hx750 costs the same as that kingwin.

well, I actually already have all of my system planned out and it hits $1037, I got rid of that PSU and put in KINGWIN Absolute Platinum. The ONLY differences is that this is not modular, and that one is semi-modular, and it is $30 cheaper! (i have a place to store all of the cables, don't worry!) And I realized that I will probaly upgrade this PSU later for the crossfire.

or just sell your AMD 7870 and invest the proceeds in what ever is the latest and greatest at the time. you then won't need a PSU upgrade and still increase performance.
