I'd say 550-600 watts will be more than enough with room to overclock.

Well if you are considering crossfiring then yes 750 watts would be a safe spot. However if not consider this nice power supply:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It is an Antec Neo 620 which is a re-badged Seasonic power supply with minor changes. It is a very good power supply and is of great quality. In addition, it's on sale thanks to the Newegg Shell Shocker Deal, its only $29.99 !!!

It's normal price is $99.99 .... Gotta give credit to Razr125 for notifying me of the deal.

Another question. Why do people on youtube use 1000+ watts for their gaming build?

Well depends on their builds actually, if they are doing something like tri crossfire or SLI then 1000 watts may be necessary. Or there are some people who believe more wattage on the power supply is better but in reality its not really better since you waste your money and the computer will only draw what it needs.

I general. Are these parts good for a gaming computer? Good= Max Settings, 30fps. That kind of good...

Ah, this is a gaming build? The i7-3770k offers barely any performance gains over the 3570k because games cannot utilize hyperthreading. In fact, some games perform worse with hyperthreading but most are tied with the 3570k. Now have you ordered the power supply? I can't guarantee you it would be there in an hour or two...stuff like that gets sold out quickly...

I think I might stick to the 750W but I will wait until there is a sale and other promotions. This is going to be a gaming build. I am also going to use this computer for Photoshop, Illustrator, After Affects, and other Adobe programs. I was told that Adobe programs use hyper threading, so thats another factor. When I am gaming, can I simply disable hyper threading?

Yes you can, if you need help take a look at this:

In addition, there is an intel representative on the forums and he can help you out if you don't understand the clip.

Cool. Now would you recommend disabling hyper threading to games like Team Fortress 2, Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3, and etc..

I heard that disabling Hyperthreading helps in Battlefield 3, though in my opinion it would be a hassle to turn it on and off again and again...

Also I am thinking of buying a EVGA GTX 670 FTW+ but I don't know if the extra $100 for the EVGA GTX 680 will be more beneficial. I presume no. I read that the EVGA GTX 670 has the same PCB or something like that as the reference GTX 680.

I'd just get the GTX 670 FTW+ , no need for an absolute overkill. In addition, sooner or later you will need to upgrade the video card as it wont be able to keep up with max settings in all games, that could be in 2-3 years or maybe 4 years.

I guess I would replace it like every 4-5 years.

This is my last question :)  . Does the Corsair water cooling system that I asked in another thread really beneficial when over clocking compared to a cpu heat sink and fan. Should I worry about leaks? The H80i and H100i are cover by a 5 year warranty. I assume that it shouldn't have any leaks (up to 4-5 years) if the warranty is that long...

Yes the H100i is better than all the air coolers I know (but by only a minimal difference). In addition, I hear the leaking and warranty does not cover damages caused to other components. So if the H100i leaks on the video card, do not expect reimbursement.

This is a cooler that is very close to the H100:

If you want benchmarks feel free to browse through my profile and threads I have recently participated in, I believe I posted a benchmark in one of them...or I'll post it up in an hour. Falling a bit back in my homework :lol:

Psu wattage needs have decreased a lot with the vradeon 7000 and nvidia 600 series of gpu. They require lot less wattage that previous generatyions of gpus.
