Hey guys and gals,

Just wondering if my PSU can handle the components i am about to throw at it or if its worth splashing on something else. I want to do this:

2x SLI gtx 660Ti
i7 3770k (Eventually OC'ed)
H100i Watercooler
Im also running about 5-6 fans as well as 2x SSD's and 2x HDD's

I could afford to splash and get a coolermaster silent pro 80 Plus Gold 1000W if i had too..

My current PSU is a 750W HX Series from corsair?

**Any other recommendations welcome (however keep in mind it needs to be relitively cheap (Dont want to skimp out on cheap product though) and im trying to keep a black and gold theme)

-Mitch

I think you'll be fine with this PSU.....

You are fine with the Corsair 750w that you have. ...even with an OC on the CPU. You don't have much headroom for future upgrades, but you are fine. If you want to calculate, hit some power supply calculators for an estimate (Google is your friend).

When / if you do upgrade, there are much better units than Cooler Master. Stick with Antec, Corsair, XFX or Seasonic.
