I'm working on my first gaming build and I have chosen all of the components but I would like to know if the PSU has enough connectors and enough watts to handle SLI if i want it to? Also if there are any ideas / suggestions on a part instead of these you have feel free to leave a note about that too :)  I WILL NOT BE OVERCLOCKING

Build:

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 7 fans ( 1 x 140, 3 x 200 w/ Led, 3 x 120 )

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ( Just 1 for now, most likely adding second in future )

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... ( No overclocking )

While that is a great PSU and I recommend PC Power and Cooling all the time that is a little big for 2 x GTX 680s that only need a recommended 800 watts. You can actually do better for the same or less money.

Seasonic X 850. The X series are among the best power supplies on the market. 80 Plus Gold certified and fully modular. Same price as the PC Power and Cooling.

XFX Pro XXX Edition. 80 Plus Silver certified and semi modular. $15 cheaper.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The XFX like all XFX units is made by Seasonic. Most PC Power and Cooling units are as well but not the Silencer MK II line. It's made by Sirtec and while still very highly rated, I consider Seasonic the best overall manufacturer.

You really can't go wrong with any of those units but for my money the Seasonic X series is a no brainer.
