Seeing how some of the recent post got flushed...While Corsair does sell some good power supplies, they are not always the way to go. You also shouldn't limiting yourself through a narrow scope of brands, when there are many excellent brands out there that sells their units for not only cheaper but may even be superior in terms of performance, build quality, functionality, etc.

The power draw of your system isn't every high as mentioned before, that you could power your system on a Seasonic G 360w. Here's a system with someone having it powered a a 3770 and GTX670. http://www.overclock.net/t/1126863/real-world-power-usage-user-submitted-values/170#post_18164451

So, you don't need invest in a >550w unit for your system. If you have plans to CFX that 7850 you could go with that Rosewill Capstone 450w that Sin had recommended. Alternatively, you could also get the Seasonic G SSR-450RM if you want a PSU with modularity, but the shipping cost made it the same as the 550w unit. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151119

Thanks man i just don't know why the hell they would have requirements to power some of these things if they don't truly need it to power everything. The thing is i was just scared that when i order everything and i go to start the build that the power supply wasn't strong enough to power everything and id be screwed ya know but thanks i still have Sin's power supply on my list and i was thinking of going his route/recommendation because i do plan to do more things with this build

The company always needs to be on the safe side, so they rather say a few W more then less.

If you have not bought yet; there is a program link in my sig. Written by one of our power supply guru's and master. You will be surprised how little power you actually need for most things. A properly rated PSU does not need to be a monster to do well. That Rosewill Sin linked to is excellent and efficient. And a great price too. Look at it again. I talked to them at Computex and they seem to know how to get the most from and pick the best OEM makers for their stuff. Being the New Egg brand can do that.

Second, the set up you describe is perfect for an SSD. They are the best upgrade you can get. You don't even need to break the bank to get a huge one. 128GB is fine. Then get a big slow old storage drive, like a Green, and you are done.

Have fun with your build.

No i haven't brought anything yet i was still comparing prices for the best deals, umm the one Sin linked is probably the one im getting though i already put it on my list. And yea i used a few PSU Watts calculators and they all tell me like 300-325ish is what i need to run everything , ima download the one you suggested from your signature just to see as well. Yea the SSD i definitely know its worth it but i don't wanna get one and there's like no space on it. Thanks Dude
