So could someone please recommend me a good power supply that will have enough power for this rig.
and please let me know if there will
be any compatibility issues.

good? or cheap?
it looks like you have some top of the line parts so have a flexible budget.

Therefore if you want a top-of-the line PSU to match I would recommend Seasonic X or platinum series.

Seasonic is an excellent choice. Depending on budget, Corsair and Antec are good alternatives.

Before dropping coins on a sound card, you might want to test the 7.1 on the MB you selected.

Hi - how much do u want to spend on the PSU? cmichael & raytseng are giving u the right brands,
so your PSU budget is needed to narrow it down.

No budget money is not an issue at the moment.

Then Def consider the Seasonic X850 Gold I linked. You don't need that much wattage, but your sys
has a lot of upper end components and this sort of fits the sys from that respect. Or you could go platinum
which nets to about $20 more than the gold after calc rebates, shipping, etc.
