Okay, today I went to Micro Center and also ordered a few components online. This is my first build and today I ran into some trouble with the psu I had picked out. This is what I am working with...
cooler master v8 cpu cooler
asus p8L77 deluxe motherboard
gtx 680 4gb ftw
16gb crucial balistix elite 2x8gb
crucial 256g ssd
2 tb green caviar hdd (I believe I will be exchanging that tomorrow for the black cav. I was trying to tell myself it was alright to compromise but now i have an itch to upgrade)
pioneer optical drive blu-ray burner
aerocool touch 2000 control
coolermaster haf x 942
and for the psu I had picked out the corsair gs800, their website and their system said they had 5 in stock. I had multiple searching everywhere for them but had no luck. They checked in the back behind and under every other psu in the place.
I ended up settling with the corsair gs700. Now is that going to be enough power? and was the gs800 under, perfect, or overkill?
I will be going there tomorrow to get a few more things, and want to know what psu would you get thats under a $140
