Ok, here is the computer i want to build. yes, i know, probably overkill, but that is what i want (and im thinking about the future advancement of technology and games). and since im building it myself i can build it for around $5000, which is cheap for all of this. All the components come from newegg.com.
What i need to know is what is the best PSU i can get that will provide enough watts, amps, and volts to power every component listed here. also, money is not an issue. so don't pick the cheaper of two possible PSUs just because it will save me money, i want quality, not cheap. thank you all.
i have considered these two PSUs:
1. LEPA G Series G1600-MA 1600W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply (sold by newegg.com)
2. ePOWER EP-2000P10-T3 2000W ATX12V Ver.2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Active PFC Power Supply (can't find any sellers for this PSU)
Computer Case: $399.99
LIAN LI PC-P80NB Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
id say spend 1/3 of that, get a machine thats 90% as powerful, and then rebuild in 2 years, again for a 1/3 of that, and end up with a system far more powerful than the one you have.
if youre fully set on spending that much though, id say pc p&c is a great brand.. total wattage for something like that is gonna be pushing it, so just go with the largest wattage you can get. (im guessing that.. off hand, 850 watts is gonna more than what you need, but it might be more )
Well, you haven't mentioned your graphics card(s), the part(s) with the greatest impact on your power consumption. Unless you're putting in two 690s, though, which would be totally pointless, you should just get a highly efficient 850W unit. More watts are not better, just less efficient. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
I understand that money is no object here, but that doesn't mean you need to throw it away. That network card, for instance, is an utter waste of money. Your internet connection will always be your bottleneck, and that monstrously expensive motherboard (also pointless, but I find people often stick to them just for style) has a perfectly good network card of its own. A $180 board would as well, but it's up to you. You really can't justify an add-on network card, though.
You should just get a 512gb SSD here. Raptors are obsolete.
