Hello,
I was wondering how large a power supply I would need for this build. I am guessing a 1600w, but Im not sure that is big enough.
The specs are as follows:
2x Intel Xeon E5-2690
1x EVGA Classified SR-X 270-SE-W888-KR LGA 2011
12x 8 gig RAM
2x GTX 690's in SLI
These are just the main components. It will also be watercooled with a koolance system. Thank you.

Would 1200 be enough with all of that plus 8x 2TB harddrives with 2 ssds and everything else necessary? I was thinking about a EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500.
