I'm going to build my first gaming rig and I can't decide what Power Supply should I buy. I was eying for Cougar GX 1050 Watts > http://www.cougar-world.de/en/prod [...] ar-gx.html , also I read some reviews > http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews [...] w_review/1, http://www.anandtech.com/show/3992 [...] psuroundup Here's my rig: CPU: i7 3930K MoBo: Asus Rampage IV Extreme GPU: Asus GTX 680 Direct CU II Top RAM: G-Skill Ripjaws-Z 16GB 1600Mhz Quad Channel Kit PS: I already bought them yesterday and I'm planning to overclock my CPU and GPU.

I doubt you need a Gold unit, if you can settle for a Bronze unit, this one is Seasonic built with 5yr warranty http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... This unit is on sale this weekend only, also Bronze and Seasonic built but only 3yr warranty. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $69.99 after rebate and promo code Can't find your answer ?
