Hi, I have been on here before about my computer spec just checking to see weather i can save some money and im not sure if the PSU i want to get will be able to handle my 2nd 670 if i decide to get another one later on it's either the Corsair HX1050 or the Corsair HX850 here is my current config that i will be getting.

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($324.99 @ NCIX US)
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler ($75.98 @ Outlet PC)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($134.99 @ Microcenter)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-2133 Memory ($109.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate SV35.5 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($169.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: OCZ Vertex 4 256GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($199.99 @ Amazon)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card ($407.98 @ Amazon)
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($99.99 @ Amazon)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit) ($90.94 @ Amazon)
Total: $1614.84

Im just not sure about the PSU any help will be greatly appreciated. Oh and also if all that stuff will fit into the case I want to get the Nzxt Phantom 410 Atx Mid Tower.

I want to play a lot of high demand games and be able to run a couple of different games up at the same time. Like multiple clients, some or more so websites going on, skype and more stuff. But im mainly wanting to know about my PSU and if the Corsair Hx850 will be able to run the current setup along with probably getting another 670 later down the track as well as all that stuff fit in the case.

Want to save some $$$? Drop the SSD, Noctua cooler, i7, 16gb RAM. Get a CM Hyper 212+ EVO, i5, 8GB RAM kit and a 750 - 850w Corsair or Seasonic PSU.

Seeing now that you want to run multiples instances of different games on one machine, I must say I can't help with that but my first comment still stands if you want to save some money and still have quality parts to play one game on one machine.

I myself detest GIGABYTE after their Z68 fiasco and how they handle it and will not recommend them again any time soon but ASRock is alright.
