The PSU is only going to pull from the wall what it needs to pull in order to deliver the amount of power that the system is pulling from the PSU.  So an 800W power supply is not constantly pulling 800W from the wall outlet.  If the system is pulling 300W from it and if the PSU is 85% efficient, then it will pull about 353W from the wall outlet.  This will change very slightly between a large capacity PSU vs. a smaller capacity for technical reasons (there's a sweet spot where the efficiency is maximized), but generally it's not enough to worry about when comparing quality-made power supplies.

It seems I will have to think this trough with SLI, but in the end i might just go with the 660ti that i already have and just pop SSD and modular PSU in to the build and just w8 for new Kepler and upgrade to 7xx in near future...
Anyway thx guys for the ideas im going to look at some overlocking of i5-3570K threads now .. Peace out thumb.gif

one more thing i would like to ask biggrin.gif should i go for 2133MHz CL11 or 1600 CL9 or 1866 CL9 RAM ? i kind of dont understand the diferences in latency and impact on performance with i5-3570K, also there is CORSAIR 8GB KIT DDR3 2133MHz CL9 Red Vengeance (CMZ8GX3M2X2133C9R) i like that one pretty much but will it fit under Noctuna heatsink ? is it worth 40bucks extra ?
