Hi, currently i am looking at getting:

i5-3570k
Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO
AsRock Z77 Extreme 4
Seagate Barracuda 1Tb
G.Skill Ares 1600MHz 8Gb (2x4Gb)
Powercolor HD7950

+the OCZ ZT 750w. It has some pretty good reviews, but i was wondering if this is good and 750w would be enough if i do some overclocking and maybe add another 7950 in crossfire.

Ty in advance.

Yeah, they look great, esp. the Rosewill one. But i live in Australia so :(  cant get them off newegg.

Other then that one, i could get a 600w Silverstone Strider Plus or 620w modular Antec HCG for a similar price. I dont think that they could do crossfire though.

Let me know what you think.

P.S. This site would be preferred if you can suggest a better alternative for around the same price or cheaper.

Plus are you really gonna get another card to crossfire..would it not be better to get a newer video card further down the line.

Every thing is going the way of power efficiency

OK, so if i wasnt going to crossfire, would it be better off getting the 750w one that i listed earlier (OCZ ZT 750w) or instead getting a "better quality" 600/620w one like the Antec high current gamer or Silverstone strider plus. The 750w in the OP is about the same price as the 600/620w psu's by silverstone and antec.

Ty again

Ty for help, i think i will go with the OCZ Zt just in case i want to crossfire later. If something does go wrong, it does have the added protection of a 5 year warranty, so thats good to know. Appreciate your help.
