I never go by eggs on Newegg. All it takes is a couple people to kill the score. You will find more people that are willing to complain about something than they are to praise it.

Here is the review by Jonnyguru; Reviews - Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 750W. At $160, has too much competition, but for $95 thumb.gif.

ok well that puts me like this then...:

Theoretical Buy:
THOR V2 - $120 (MiR - $20)
FX-8350 - $200 (MiR -$10)
Thermaltake TPG-750M Toughpower Grand GOLD 750W - $112 (MiR -$20)

Paid Total: $421.97 - $50 MiR = $372

Still deciding on motherboard.
Already have RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 2x8GB 1866 (I wrote in mobo but no one responded frown.gif)
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 7850 (Hopefully I can CrossFire in future, but it's damn huge so I think x2 is only possible way, I don't think x3 is feasible -- get too hot if they can even fit in).

For motherboard, I would go with this Gigabyte
GA-990FXA-UD3
for $138. Most bang for the buck and gives you sli or xfire.

7870 will be plenty for any game on 1080p. Just pick one that fits your budget and size requirments (no real issues with a full size atx case).
It's so little!

thanks for responding!

Unfortunately, in my honest effort to post things in correct areas, I have an updated topic: http://www.overclock.net/t/1355472/need-help-with-cpu-mobo-combo-decision

It just happens that my part-related questions happen to be macro-level related to the fact that I'm trying to build a rig.

If you're only going to do dual 7850's with an 8350, then 550-600 watts should be plenty. If you really want to add a third then you would need around 700, but as you've noted it may not even be possible or good decision.
