Why a 1000 watt power supply? A 500 watt quality power supply would be more than enough.

I picked a 1000w power supply so I have options for the future. When I have the funds to do so I would like to have 2 graphics cards and SLI them together. I just don't want to be limited by my power supply.

With today's graphics cards, unless you're planning on getting two dual-gpu cards, a 750 watt power supply would suffice. You could probably even get away with a 650 watt, but that might be pushing it.

A 750w runs about $100 and my 1000w is running $120 so I think it follows the more bang for your buck theory.

The case arrived so I unboxed it and took some pictures. Parts to begin modding should come in a few days! smile.gif
