Hi guys, whats up? first time poster here....I am currently building my first gaming rig, and after 2 days of googling headache i still can't pretty much decide the power supply i would need to safely run my rig. Here is my current rig :
CPU: Intel Core i5 3570K , planning to overclock it to 4.5 -4.6 GHz
Mobo: AsRock Z77 Extreme 6 Gen 3
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4Gb DDR 3 1600
GPU : GTX 670 ( haven't decided yet which brand i'm going to buy, but i'm leaning towards gigabyte and msi since it is the easiest to find on where i live, or maybe an evga 670 FTW ).
ASUS is out of option since they're so expensive here ( about 600-620 USD for vanilla card ! )
Hard Drive : 1 TB Seagate ( forget the spec because i got it as a replacement for my broken hard drive from my old rig from a computer service center ). I am also planning to add one 120Gb SSD later when i got the cash
Casing : some sort of custom made casing plenty of airflow
Cooling : Thermaltake Aquarius II plus 1 High Performance 80mm fan and 2 120mm Fan. Those 3 fans are using LEDS
DVD drive : haven't bought one, but i think i'll just gonna buy a standard cd/dvd RW drive plus card reader
Keyboard : currently using an old logitech Y-SZ49, but i'm going to buy a new one that has nice backlit
Mouse : Razer Deathadder Dragon Age II edition
I'm also planning to do SLI with the 670 later, especially if could opt for 2560x1440 monitor ( current is 1920 x 1200 ). I am also going to overclock both cards, maybe to 1100ish or 1200ish if possible
I may also add some LED's to co cheer up my Rig (yay!)
From what i learn after past 2 days of googling, i would require 750 - 850 watt PSU. I have narrowed my selection to these 2 PSUS : Seasonic X-760 and Corsair HX 850 ( mainly because of price tags, Seasonic is kinda cheap on where i live while Corsair is the contrary ). Price difference is about 20 USD with Corsair being the more expensive
I'm also planning to futureproof a bit, and also if 850watt is a MUST for safely running my rig, i will go for Seasonic X-850 since it is only about 10 bucks price premium over the HX 850.
Corsair HX 750 is out of option since it is more expensive than Seasonic X-760 by around 10 bucks , so i would not go for it. Same goes for AX 850 which is currently priced at 220 USD
Lastly, another noob question here....i may opt for msi gtx 670 power edition if the review was found to be good. That means i'm likely going to overvolt the card(s). Does that mean i'm going to need a 850watt PSU?
Which one of those PSU's that you guys would recommend for my rig? Also please kindly state your opinion / reason that supports your selection
I'm totally new and noob as well in this field, so all of you guys responses are greatly appreciated
