What PSU W needed for i7-3770k and GTX 680

hey guys,

i haven't built a desktop since when 2gb was an excess of ram already. i plan on buying the i7-3770k and the GTX 680 (might go with 670 if i run out of cash) and i was wondering if a 650w PSU would be enough to power this.

this will include like 9 fans, h100 cooling system, and the dvd burner. that's all i use really. i dont plan on overclocking at all in anyway.

thank you and have a good day

    Hey man I would suggest going for a 750W or 850W PSU just to be comfortable in the fact that you can add more stuff into the computer without risking not having a big enough power supply
  2. A strong 650 watt PSU like a Corsair TX650v2 would cover it. And, yes I absolutely would go with a GTX 670 over a 680. For the price a GTX 680 commands for the performance advantage over the 670 is just simply not worth it. Especially considering you could spend about mid-way between their two price points and get a 7970 GHZ edition that outperforms both of them.
  3. i actually bought the corsair AX650. hopefully it will be enough. i dont plan on having multiple video cards or anything.
