Hello everyone. Recently I have been working on choosing what parts I want in my first build. The specs are as follows:

CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge

Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW 2GB

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM

Case: Corsair Carbide Series 500R White

MOBO: ASRock Z77 Extreme4

Heatsink: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO

And lastly, PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.2, which can be found here

Now, my question is this. Will this PSU power all this stuff, plus an optical drive, several fans, etc.? If not, please give suggestions to what would work. Also, I'd like to get a Corsair PSU if possible.

Thanks in advance, Jonah

too much watt for single gtx 670 actually can ran SLI by default

That PSU will do the job just fine. If/when you add the 2nd card, it will still be OK.

enough to power 2 cards(though only a normal 80+ certification on a 130$ psu is pretty pitiful.)

There is no good reason to get the original 750TX when it has been replaced by a much improved model (TX750 V2), which is cheaper.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... HX650 will do the job for around the same price.

The TX750V2 is an even better option after the discount code and instant discount - Awesome dela at ~$80: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would check out Gadgetar for some good Prices.

It all comes down to if you want to overclock or not, if you are running everything default then the one you selected is enough or you can buy even low wattage and save some more money.
