Good day everyone! 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. Also I will set this monster in Full Liquid Cooling and I won't be running in S.L.I. Thanks in advance!

Joshua you don't need 1000w, you need a good 600w unit.

What's your budget for a psu, your links don't work.

I doubt you need a Gold unit, if you can settle for a Bronze unit, this one is Seasonic built with 5yr warranty

This unit is on sale this weekend only, also Bronze and Seasonic built but only 3yr warranty.
