Get the Asrock Extreme6 over the fatal1ty professional. You will get a better experience.
Coolermaster evo doesn't cost 80 dollars.

you do not need anything higher than a 600 watt PSU
HIS Radeon HD 7950 review
Our test system is based on a power hungry Core i7 965 / X58 system.
Quote:
Measured power consumption

System in IDLE = 165W
System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 300W
Difference (GPU load) = 138W
Add average IDLE wattage ~3W
Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 138 Watts

Radeon HD 7950 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.


lets split the difference and look at a quality 550:

XFX 550W PRO550W Core Edition $59.99
After Mail In Rebate: $49.99

The OCZ SSD should be looked at, TigerDirect sells the Vertex 3 120GB on sale every couple of weeks for about $80. It's what I have, and its a good drive.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... That one likes to go on sale for about another $20 off with a MIR


Im sorry,the cheapest 120gb that i found cost around 120$ in my local online shop.So im going for 60gb just for OS.

you can read the review to be assured, 3D guru is a reputable site. well, to be honest i think there are times that they overestimate the wattage of a needed PSU.
the test system they use will draw more power than your ivy bridge unless you overclock past 4.2 and need to raise your Vcore; then they would be the ~same.

if you feel better with a 600 watt then go for it. just keep in mind that PSUs lose efficiency when below a 20% load (~74%). so if you get a 800 watt 80 bronze PSU and idle under 160 watts, which a system does most of the time, your efficiency will be that of a non 80+ PSU.
