Hi
This is what I'm currently wanting to build
Asus Z77 Sabertooth
Phantom 410
16gb RAM
LG GH24NS90 SATA DVD Optical
Asus GTX 660Ti
HDD 2TB Seagate
But I need to know which psu I should get, note I will be getting another gtx 660ti in the future so the psu will have to handle that aswell.
I would also like to know if this HDD is any good, I need one under £100.
Thanks

Here is Guru3Ds power supply recommendation:

GeForce GTX 660 Ti - On your average system the card requires you to have a 450~500 Watt power supply unit.
GeForce GTX 660 Ti SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 700 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

If you are going to overclock GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina. Source: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_gtx_66... This will be fine http://pcpartpicker.com/mr/overclockerscouk/xfx-power-s... my buddy uses it hes running two 660 ti's and his build is almost same as yours ;)

wanting to build = not built right?

change the motherboard to a asrock extreme4 or a asus z77-v pro. sabertooth is a gimmick and will heat up your board

id recommend the xfx xxx 750 if you are going to do SLI in the future. otherwise a 550w should handle it



oh and for the 660ti, you are better off with a msi power edition 660ti
