  1. If you are serious about SLI'ing that GTX 670, I would get a 750W PSU. It gives you enough headroom that your PSU will not be lacking juice. I have the xfx core edition 750W and it works great. Other reputable and reliable brands include Corsair, OCZ, Seasonic, etc..

    Everything else looks good to me.
  2. Yeah didn't plan on it for a while, but I do have a little budget left over I could go to 750W not a bad idea sir.

    Went with a OCZ ZT Series 750W Fully-Modular 80PLUS Bronze -

    scratch that one reading reviews and cables seem a little short for full towers from what im hearing back to newegg!

    Allright went with a XFX PRO750W XXX Edition Semi-Modular 80Plus Silver 750 Watt Power Supply -
  3. That XFX PSU will make you happy. I myself have the XFX Core Edition 750W (similar only non-modular). :)
  4. Agreed, if you want to eventually double the 670 power go with a 750 watt. Other than that, yeah you've got a pretty decent build although why not spend a little more for a higher capacity secondary drive?
  5. Good choice didn't even think to go with a lower rpm for the cheaper price. Alright ordering today thanks for the help guys.
