Hi guys, just doing a final check/deciding on a PSU before I order everything. I know 850w would even be overkill for 670 SLI
(My future plan) however I would like to keep at that just for future proofing and peace at mind. There are a couple of PSU's im looking at, also I would like it to be modular and within $120-$170 AUD. These are the ones im looking at:

Also I will be buying a SSD in 2-3 months, these are the ones im looking at:

Also I know I have a pretty expensive mobo but I like it so I dont really care. Also I would appreciate all critacism/ opinions
on my build. Also I would like to say a huge thanks to manofchalk for helping me pick most of the parts. And one last question are Enermax T.B Vegas Trio 120mm LED Fan quality fans? Because they look awsome and are really expensive. Eventually im going to replace all my fans with those but for now im going to use COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Case Fan. Also im going to replace the 200mm white LED fan with a COOLER MASTER Megaflow 200mm Red or blue case fan.

Im getting a Seasonic PSU now


Processor: i5-3570k
CPU cooler: Hyper 212 EVO
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V PRO
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce Overclock (In the future I will run 2 in SLI)
SSD:
Hard drive: SEAGATE Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM ST2000DM001
PSU: Seasonic M12 II 750W
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB (2x4) DDR3 1600MHz
Optical Drive: Lite-On Super AllWrite 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive
Case:CORSAIR CARBIDE SERIES 500R White


Also based purely on aesthetics should I go blue LED's or Red LEDS or another colour, the only problem is the 200mm side fan which there arnt many quality LED fans

Best solution

Wait until you get your case before splurging on fans. You can only get as many fans as your case has mounts for and the size and position of them do matter.

You really don't need 850W for that setup - and so far not a single one of those I feel would be worth buying. If you're buying from Australia then parts from Newegg won't carry over especially power supplies.

Here's a couple I would suggest:

- Corsair TX 750 V2: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
- Seasonic M12 II 750W: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
- Seasonic X660 Gold: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
- Antec High Current Gamer 750W: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...

For SSD the Samsung 840 Pro and the Crucial M4 are both solid choices. However I'm not real crazy about Sandforce drives like the Vertex 3 or the Chronos. The Vertex 4 is far better, and I'd also recommend the new OCZ Vector. Here is a couple I would suggest:

- Plextor M3 Pro: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i...
- OCZ Vector: http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/48523-vtr1-25sat3-1...
- OCZ Vertex 4: http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/45427-vtx4-25sat3-1...

Ok so im probably going to go for the M12 II as for the SSD it im leaning towards the Samsung based on all the positive reviews (Not saying other ones arnt positive) also I thought it would be easier to use Newegg just to look at reviews and stuff I will be buying from a website called Greenboxit. Thanks for replying.
