And why does everyone continue to say that i dont need that much, will it hurt my sig rig if i put it in there for now?

It wouldn't hurt your sig rig, it would be just a tremendous waste if you would use it for an identical system, you know?

It is easier for us to recommend a given component if you tell us the type of system it will integrate, so you won't be buying and wasting money in something that probably you would never need. If you're building a high-end system you might need a very capable PSU. in that area, Tator Tot can advise you much better than me.

If that is your plan, at most I'd would get a 750w.

This is a great quality PSU:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207003

It is Seasonic build also.

But even that is overkill. Also, its kind of pointless to get a 1st gen i7 now. You should look into the 2500k and 2600k. Any remote ideas of what GPU you will be getting?

Okay thanks, yes i am upgrading to an extreme rig dont know what parts i am going to put into it yet because i am still researching but i do know it is going to be along these lines:

Intel hexacore procesor something around the 950 or so range.
2-3 hd5870's(not dead positive on if this is the card i will choose or not)
2x1tb hdd raid0
2 128gb ssd raid0
dvd burner w/lightscribe
a billion fans
some sound card
maybe an additional dvd reader
etc

nothing is set in stone yet still figuring it out but something along those lines... Does that help anyone? And i cannot find the price of the mushkin joule except on one site and it says it is $99 does this sound about right?

Hmmm, i haven't seen any price on online retailers too, but $99 for a 1200W PSU doesn't inspire very much confidence. A decent 1200W PSU would cost about $150-$180.

Tator Tot has a great thread on recommended PSU here:
http://www.overclock.net/power-supplies/183810-faq-recommended-power-supplies.html

I believe that most of them don't have LEDs, not even one, so the 3 coulour change would fail.

And about the i7-950, if you are thinking on hexa-core you need to be looking for the i7-970. yes, those are still better than the Sandy-Bridge ones.

1. A quality 550W will run any system with any single graphics card, including a 980X and a GTX580 or HD5970. A 650W will run most dual graphics card systems.

2. i7 950 is not a hexacore processor, 980X is Intel's only consumer hexacore

3. Why look for a PSU that can change fan color, rather than pick one that is the color you're going to want?

4. Or better yet a PSU with a plain black fan, since I guarantee that all those glitzy fans are going to really start grating on your nerves in a year or two

I was looking at the 970 but wasnt sure yet as the multiplier is locked so maybe the 980 or 990.

Good point, and thats a good idea, but i want to have the flexibility to change color depending on the look i want... But if i cannot find another psu that does this then i will get either the 1200w joule or some single colored psu...

you think i will start to not like the led lights after a year or two? nah i dont think sooo...

Trust me. LEDs start out awesome, but anyone who's in this hobby more than two years generally starts to either be ambivalent toward them, or hate them with a passion.

Happened to me, I blinged out my case with LEDs about two years ago... it only took 6 months for them to start getting on my nerves. I now hate them.
