New build in the works.. any suggestions?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Here's the new hardware (current rig is in my sig):

MSI Gaming N780 TF 3GD5/OC + GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 'Combo'

GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD5H LGA 1150 Intel Z97

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

*UPDATED* EVGA SuperNOVA 750W


Hardware I will NOT be replacing:

HDD

SSD

H220, will be using it on CPU only

HAF 932


This build is mainly for gaming, secondly music production, video editing/rendering and graphic design.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!



(hopefully this is the correct forum section, if not feel free to move it, thanks!)

That PSU is way over kill unless you're doing some serious overvolting on those cards.
You'd be fine with a 750W PSU.

Would it still be overkill with another GPU? (won't be buying 2 right now, but in the not so distant future)

Hold on I'm confused?
750 is enough for two 780s. 1000w is enough for three.

Got ya.

Anything else stick out that can be changed? upgraded/downgraded?

Also, original post has been updated with new PSU option.
