I'm not saying I don't overkill, I just like to save people money where not needed tongue.gif

im in a priveliged position to not really have to worry to much about saving the money wink.gif BUT i do have my limits of what im willing to pay.

^No, in fact he's probably more in touch with how this works than you are (considering your above post).
There is overkill (which actually adds to the overall performance and/or experience, like ultra fast RAM which helps in benching, over the top cooling for extreme clocks, large/fast SSDs, etc) and then there is stupid overkill (overkill that does absolutely nothing for you, essentially being a money sink, and that's exactly what PSU oversizing is). smile.gif
The correct approach to PSU purchases is 1st to establish your required power output and then buying the best unit you can afford at that output (or slightly larger, depending on future plans).

I say Corsair GS700 all the way Amazon
also a review here

the only drawback its that its not modular, but other than that its nice to have a bit more extra juice, plus that it will match the color of your motherboard tongue.gif

EDIT : EVGA SuperNova NEX 750W. Not available yet but this one is 80+ gold,90% eff. and it will cover you in future upgrades.

If you plan on getting a new GK110 Card, and use the 580 for Physx, you're gonna want at least a 80+ Gold (cause you said you want efficiency) 600W PSU.

This is under 100 pounds, is fully modular, and is 80+ Gold. thumb.gif

And if you spend about 14pounds more, you can get the 750W version.
