the 950 watt psu is unneeded .

650 watt should more than cover it , given that the Radeon 7979 will run on a 550 watt unit .
Kepler would have to be really incompetent to use much more than that given that its also being built at 28 nm

Isn't Ivy 1155 also? So can't I put a Ivy on the motherboard I have selected?

I want a 950w just in case I want Sli/Crossfire in the future.

950W is still high considering most new cards are less power hungry.
I think SLI GTX580s only requires 850W.

no 1155 is sandybridge.with a z68 mobo you can upgrade to a ivy bridge cpu.

950w is kinda overkill.850w is more than enough for SLi/CF setups.

Everywhere online says that ivy bridge will be using lga 1155.

Ivy Bridge quads have rated TDP's of 77 watts . Much lower than sandy bridge .

To crossfire two 7970's you'd only need a 750 watt psu
And the chances of you adding a second card later are minimal . Buy the time most people want to make that kind of upgrade there is usually a newer faster generation of card available anyway

I think I'm going to just get the wait a couple of weeks for the gtx680 and then go ahead and get the i7 2600k because I don't want to wait until June for Ivy. You guys think that sounds okay?

:D  Early or late April? If it is closer to early April then ill forget about getting the z68 and the 2600k, and get a z77 and ivy 3770k. Do you know like the exact release date and price (or expectation) for ivy and the z77 boards?

Just to clear it up the ivy-bridge socket is 1155 and the board you have is compatible with it, although i believe there will be a new chip-set(i.e. p67, z68, h61) with the launch of ivy-bridge. Which does use the 1155 socket. I hope i clear it up a bit for you :) 

as for ivy bridge it was reported first at April 8th, but after that their was reports of delays but i'm not sure if that was for i-3's or all of the desktop cpus

Yeah thanks for confirming that the Ivy Bridge is 1155. That other who poster said only Sandy bridge was 1155. The new chipset you are talking about is the z77.

Hopefully the delays are not that long as I really hate waiting and I have a bad machine right now.
