New Build Some Advice Needed - Page 2

Why a 1200w power supply? Even if you add a second 580 you will never use that much power. A good quality 850w unit will easily power that.

I previously bought a high quality Corsair TX750W for my GTX 295 and i7 920 2 years back and now regrett that... With my two gtx 580's, it actually throttled the performance and walked on egg shells. Looking at the TX850W, that will not be enough for two overclocked gtx 580's...And is a $200 PSU. an HX1000W is $250 and is like two 500 watt PSU's so the railing balance sucks. For an additional $30, pay the additional money and get the best...

I though that the Samsung F3 1TB was a SATA 6.0gb/s HDD, But I guess I was wrong, Also in my opinion its better to have too much power then too little power, Also down the road i might swap the 580GTX's out for something in the future that more powerful and I dont want to have to swap out the power supply if i get to small of one, Although now im considering going with the Antec Kuhler 920 as the CPU Cooler, Do any of you guys have experience with this CPU Cooler as it seems to have a good price to performance ratio?
