How much watts for this ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
MainBoard: ASUS Maximus IV Extreme Socket 1155 motherboard
Processor: Intel i7-2600K 3.4GHz Processor (Will be overclocked to 5ghz)
GPU: Nvidia GTX 480 Fermi
RAM: 8GB (2x4GB) Dual Channel 1600 Mhz GSKILL 1.35v
HDD1: WD 1TB BLUE SATA III
HDD2: WD 500GB GREEN SATA II
HDD2: WD 500GB BLUE SATA II
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 120 GB SATA III
1 DVDRW IDE DRIVE
3D Monitor: ASUS 120hz or Samsung undecided yet.

I didn't power this system up, and yes i usually do overclocking, as i do much of high performance computing.

I currently have an HEC Cougar 700W PSU, am not sure if it's enough for this system, what do you think ?

A quality 650W should be plenty. To be SLI and CF proof in the future a quality 800/850W PSU would be better though.

Ill go for a 850W Corsair or a 1000W One.

By the numbers it can, but that psu is of lower quality and should be replaced with a more known name brand 550w minimum.

My psu is 550w and I'm probably pulling more power than you.

if it is actually 700w, thats more than enough.

see: http://www.overclock.net/power-suppl...alculator.html

Going through that comes up with ~600w.

If you're gonna use two, a 1000w is what you need. If you're gonna use one, 650w is perfect. If you want to SLI/CF but other cards, 850w is perfect. Get a quality one like the OCZ ZX-Series, Antec Truepower New, Corsair HX (if going for 1000w, get the HX1050 cause the HX1000 is crap) or the Silverstone Strider Gold/Plus.
