This may be a full newbie question, but how do you know it is enough - no offense. Im asking because nvdia is recommending 800 atleast smile.gif

welll a good 750w could run your setup nvidia recommends a 800w becuase not all psu's are created the same some psu's maybe rated for 800w but wont actually give out 800w so nvidia factors in 50 or so watts to make sure your system can handle that card now the coolermaster V series units are some of the best psu's out so a good 750w should be enough but i recommend the v850 so you have a little bit of head room for future upgrades or for overclocking smile.gif

To echo the sentiments of a few others here, I would go with one of Seasonic's higher end models (X Series / Platinum). You really can't beat these models in terms of overall build quality, performance and they are extremely quiet (not everybody cares about noise but if you do, Seasonic certainly doesn't disappoint). Also, the Corsair AX760 and AX860 (regular version not the digital model) are made by Seasonic and are essentially re-badged Seasonic Platinum 760 / 860s.

Regardless of what brand you go with though, the PSU is the one component you don't want to skimp out on. If you're on a really tight budget, you might want to consider downgrading something to make room for a higher end PSU.

Also consider energy costs. Depending on what you pay, a high efficiency PSU can pay for itself pretty quickly.

One more thing, since you plan on overclocking, I wouldn't go below 1000W (you want to leave your PSU a little headroom). Depending on how far you push your components, an overclocked 780 will probably pull around 300W and I'm guessing around 150W for the processor. That's 750W right there. Depending on how many hard drives, fans and whatever else you have planned, you might be cutting it close even with 1000W.

If you are dead set on 1000W then the Cooler Master V1000 is a much better option than the Corsair RM. Some other good value options:
EVGA SuperNova G2
NZXT HALE 90 V2
EVGA SuperNova P2

Along these lines, when it gets in stock, EVGA SuperNova G2 850W looks like a very good price for something that's built better than RM series, at DKK 949:
http://www.alternate.dk/EVGA/SuperNOVA-850-G2/html/product/1131624

High overclocks with a lot of voltage over stock and I would look at 1000W, yeah. I forget where else you buy things in Denmark, but DKK 1349 for the G2 1000W looks less appealing though still the strongest option for the price at alternate, at least.

EVGA SuperNova G2 or Cooler Master V series, you dont need more then 850 watts and you wont find better bang for buck in Denmark right now, i know as i am danish myself

Dont get a Corsair RM or a Seasonic Plat you can find better for the same money or less
