It's only overkill if he's sure he wants to keep two 670s for the rest of his life.

Most of the people on this fairly hardcore forum expand their systems over time instead of just upgrading (ie they might go from two 670s to three 770s). Especially true as you get raises or a better job over time. It's good to leave some headroom to do that.

Newer hardware use less power not more

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Seasonic-X-1250-1250W-80Plus-Gold-EPS12V-ATX12V-Power-Supply-/190745475930?pt=US_Power_Supplies&hash=item2c6950fb5a

These PSU's I am looking at are very good PSU's. What I meant by a deal is that the rosewill Fortress is 75% off. That is an amazing deal right now. The HX850 is 50%, another awesome deal. I am just wondering if I want 750W of platinum certified power (which could push more than its rated wattage and do so safely.) or 850W of gold certified power, which will do just as great, more than enough, and leaves room for a bunch more goodies to throw in the bag smile.gif.

I think I am going to go with the HX.

Think thats the bad choice

The Fortress is made by ATNG one of if not THE most underrated PSU maker

Well I am going to be running 11 fans, 3 200mm, 1 230mm, 6 120mm high performance, 1 140mm high performance. A corsair h100i, 2 fan controllers, and everything will be overclocked and running 100% when I game and test for stability.

I know the Fortress is a better deal and better PSU, but I need more wattage to be on the safe side. And this build will have to last me a few years, I might want to add some more hardware down the road.
