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/products/power-supply/cou... , also I read some reviews > http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/power_supply/cougar_..., http://www.anandtech.com/show/3992/1000w1200w-highend-p...

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!

What country you in?

850w psu if you want the option to add another one of those cards sometime in the future, otherwise a 600w - 620w - 650w psu for a single. I only say that because the socket 2011 is a power hog.

LGA2011 uses more power but 680s are very power efficient.i would suggest a quality 750w.you don't need 10xxw unit.i would suggest this power supply unit-
Rosewill capstone gold 750w modular
it's a rebranded superflower unit and is highly rated on johnyguru-

a friend on mine is running a hd 7950 CF setup with it ;) 


Thanks mate!

PS: I'm looking for a Gold or Platinum Certified PSU. I'm looking for a PSU which can last for 2-3years and I might S.L.I but not now, just getting it ready for future upgrades. Need more advice ! :D

yeah man that rosewill unit is gold certified.for SLi in future,850w is enugh.but i would suggest this unit-
LEPA 900w GOLD certified modular
it's a rebranded ENERMAX,they are well known for their top notch quality and for $170,it seems to be a good deal.
another good choice is silverstone strider gold 850w modular psu-
