That model # sounds like a raidmax psu. If so, I will have to say don't get it!!!

The stats look good but they aren't to be believed if it is a raidmax.

700 watts should be plenty from a good brand psu like antec,seasonic,corsair,xfx,pc power&cooling.

It wouldn't hurt to go 750-800watts just to be a little safe fore possible additions later
i.e. more hard drives,led's,peripherals etc...

And indeed a bigger one wouldn't be a bad idea but in was wondering if it would be possible to run 2 way sli with this power supply

Coolermaster does not have good repute either with psu's. I would consider one of the brands I listed above^

Coolermasters are known to some on here as CrapperMaster because of their tendency to take a crap on you...

A good brand psu with the specs that your cm has will indeed sli your cards... The cm will probably do it, but I wouldn't guarantee how long it will work, and I wouldn't trust the safety of my expensive components to it...

then i gues waiting until i throw in a new mobo cpu and gpu in 2 or 3 years and then buy a good psu will be the best option, at the moment i aint drawing it full power so for my current setup it is fine. thanks for the info on the good brands ;)

If you use part picker then it tells you the watts needed. It's a good tool for custom PC building.

With this build you will be using about 557 Watts and your PSU with 88% efficiency will likely put out around 616 Watts maximum, realistically you'll only be getting about 580-610 Watts, so you should be fine. If you want to put in every one of your parts manually then that would probably be best.

Thanks for the tip i already have the sabertooth 3770k amd 680 running for 2 months they perform fine so it was enough power was build by a pccompany called gamepc they test all setups, will check my voltage, tough they told it was comparable with a regular 1000 watt psu
