I assume this is the Vertex 4? Because there's no such thing as a Vertex 7.

Also, you do not need an 850W PSU unless you're running crossfire or SLI. A good 550W unit is plenty for any build with a single video card.

Looks very good! It seems obvious to me your going to SLI at some point.

Yes, it's Vertex 4, mistype :) 
Shouldn't I buy 850W so it will last for few builds ?

btw, I'm coming from Dual Core E6750

Higher wattage will not last longer. Unless you plan to use multiple video cards in one of your future builds, the 850W unit is a waste.

I'm getting 750W, still want it to last with next build or if I decide to SLI sometime.
Thanks everyone, ordering this on monday.

750W is fine; 850W was more power than needed.
