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...

i-7 3770k

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

Hi, if you can exchange the 680 for a 670 that would be better :)

nope, keeping that, it wasnt a budget thing, just their suggestion to step down. What psu would you get if this is what you were working with?

A single 680 right?

The corsair GS700 would be more than enough.

Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

GeForce GTX 680 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit.
GeForce GTX 680 SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 750 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

If you are going to overclock GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina. http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_680_re...
