Thanks Shilka, I wasn't aware of that. How do the lower wattage models differ and in which areas do they perform worse?

OP - The PSU Shilka has recommended would be this one - https://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-evga-supernova-g2-fully-modular-80plus-gold-atx-power-supply-541a-single-plus12v-rail-140mm-dou

Ripple suppression on the GQ is about 3-4 times higher on the 650 watt version vs the 850 watt version, voltage regulation is also better on the 850 watt.
No reviews of the 750 watt so cant say if its like the 650 or 850 watt version.

So the only really good units EVGA has below 750 watts is the G2 and the P2 (T2 will come later) the GS and GQ are both average.
Just to note average does not make them bad average just means average as in not great but not bad either.

thanks for your help with building pc and thanks for mentioning Scan, I'll keep them in mind when looking for best prices.

So this is what we have
http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/fYk6TW

and as far as I can see this should all work with my ASUS Xonar D2X Audio and I will not need to buy any adapters because the video card has 2 DVI ports and the mothrboard also has one, am I correct?

You picked the NEX and not the G2.

You dont want an NEX.
Why you should not buy an EVGA SuperNova NEX650G/750G (aka G1)

honestly, the 'final' built is very 'meh' IMO, cant comment on PSU but i can tell you you won't be future proof with 650W.

also where is the storage, i guess peple will say you NEED a 1TB 'boot drive' HURR DURR SSD, so you just need to reduce the performance/quality on everything already in the 'meh' state
