Good morning, fine ladies and gentlemen.

I was wondering what power supply in watts will be the required for this configuration:

*Gygabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti OC 3GB
*Intel i7 Ivy Bridge 3770k
*ASUS Maximus V Gene
*CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866


I would be really pleased for a quick & helpful reply as I'm really anxious to get this rig working

Also, what kind of cooling do you think it will be good ?

Thanks again and have a lovely day.

Hi - realhardtech suggests 450w for a sys with one 660ti.

If you are going to OC or add aftermarket cooling, then you should bump
that figure. I don't know what your budget for a PSU is, but normally
in your config I would suggest a quality 550w unit.

That would give you ample headroom and your PSU wouldn't
have
to 'work as hard' as a 450w unit, which should allow it to be
somewhat cooler and quieter.

Quality brands: Seasoninc, XFX, Rosewill Capstone series(and other Superflower made units ie Kingwin),
Antec, most Corsairs, PC Power & Cooling, Enermax, and some others.

Hi mate , I'd recommend you get a 650W PSU and you'll have headroom in the future for ugprades etc without having to buy a new power supply. When buying look out for good quality hardware from suppliers such as Corsair , Seasonic , Antec , XFX & Rosewill. Don't cheap out and get a cheap 650W PSU ( They'll eventually just blow and may damage your hardware )

Hope I helped :)
