For sure. Would the M12II 620 put him in no mans land in regards to a 2nd 680 one day? IE can do it but at the sacrifice of high OC's at that point? not sure.

Still, You can't beat that PSU for $70 right now, it's a better option than any other 450w-650w PSU's that are modular from what I can see.

A higher end 600W unit yes... but you don't wanna' do that on a M12IIB 620(-xxxET), group regulated secondary... not pretty smile.gif
A Hale82 650W @ 86$ shipped would be a better choice if he intends to add a second card later on.. if not, the M12IIB 620 is an excellent choice for the money.

For less price you can get a 750W Rosewill Capstone 80+ GOLD Modular PSU.  More capacity and better quality and efficiency (up to 92% vs 90%) for under $100 - that's $50+ less than the Corsair AX series.  Corsair PSUs are hardly good deals nowadays; the competition is getting better.

that makes sense as well, i think i will go with this PSU and go with a GTX 680 instead of a 580. problem solved!

Great PSU. Not modular though.

i have decided to go with this one, mostly because of general reviews, and i will have PLENTY of airflow for the amount of overclocking i am going to do... so thank you to EVERYONE with these posts, i appreciate seeing xd's post, 18,000 posts should know something about what he is talking about, that to me, speaks higher than any newegg reviews.thumb.gifthumb.gif

Get a Hale 750 watt. Plenty of power for dual GTX 680s when you want it, but not over the top.
Also, you might want to check out a cheaper case.
