620? That's a strange wattage lol

And yeah! I'd like to upgrade my PSU, then my Graphics card. My CPU is probably going to follow that and then another graphics card with any luck! biggrin.gif Sooooo excited

Consider all your variables including the fact you might get a more powerful CPU that draws more power though if you got the Intel route it might draw less power.

If you're going AMD go with a 700W+, especially if you want to overclock. AMD power draws are ridiculous.
Better than AMD

Okay. The verdict is in! I've decided on this one smile.gif

It's got enough wattage to support any future upgrades I'll have, Gold certified, Modular, 7 year warranty and it's got crossfire support smile.gif Thank you so much guys!!!!!!!! I couldn't have done it without you all biggrin.gif

I've got the Corsair TX850 and I've been told it was overkill for what I was doing. However, if you plan on using it for newer CPU's, and newer/multi GPU configurations, 750W+ is definitely the way to go.
I've heard that Rosewell Fortress is the brand to look at.

That's not modular which is a negative for me because I've got a nice window on my case and love cable management smile.gif The main reason I got the case I have!

I'm thinking Ripjaws fer some reason..Maybe some Crucial..

I'm guessing the PSU thing is handled already.

a Used CH4-5 or Sabertooth,or gtd-pro..or 990fxe wouldn't hurt either biggrin.gif

Actually, I got that CORSAIR HX750 for $99 because of a 10 dollar off promo code and the 20 dollar rebate card. biggrin.gif

Would having any more than 8gb be worth it? I have been wanting to consolidate my ram into fewer sticks but I don't really know what benefits that would bring :/
