That's a great PSU for dual GTX 760s. But I would look at a regular HDD, rather than the green drive. They tend to slow down when not in use. And they are not intended for a boot drive use.

From WD:
"Recommended use.
WD Green hard drives are tested and recommended for use in PCs as secondary storage, external enclosures and other applications that require cool and quiet operation."

It's more than enough , a good 750w would run those specs.

OK. Point taken. Just be aware that the green drive may spin down occasionally. Or run at a slower RPM. And may not last as long.

Agreed. The Frio has a better heat pipe contact with the CPU because of its direct contact design. It also has a bigger fan(s).
