Hi everyone!
I am seeking help regarding an appropriate power supply. For now, I am just making plans. At the end of the year, there will be a huge sale (Australian Boxing Day). I'm not quite sure what to expect from the sale but prices are expected to drop dramatically. I'll also pick up parts if they go cheap on the way. I will be building my first PC. I am looking to build a PC with a $1000 budget with maximum performance and a colour scheme (either black and gold or black red and gold). My current list of planned parts exceed my $1000 budget but they have been chosen with consideration of sales. Also, if anyone has opinions regarding any other particular parts, feel free to express them. The PC will be an all purpose PC. I wish to play games such as Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls and Counter Strike Global Offensive on high settings with steady framerates (my laptop currently sh**s bricks on D3RoS lowest settings in ACT V and just suffices with games on lowest settings). I may also do a little bit of photo editing on Adobe Photoshop here and there. I'm quite nooby so please don't flame. I'd also like build validation.
My planned list of parts (All prices were found from local sources in Australia and are in AUD) (Parts from centrecom.com.au and pccasegear.com) :
Case:
-Phanteks Enthoo Pro ($119)
OR
-Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 ($99)
OR
-Bitfenix Shinobi Windowed ($79)
OR
-NZXT H440 ($159)
OR
-Bitfenix Neos ($75)
OR
-Corsair 230T ($109)
OR
-NZXT Phantom 410 ($129)
CPU:
-Intel Core i5-4690K ($264) (I have chosen an overclockable CPU but I have no plans for overclocking just yet until I am familiar with the PC and wish to boost the performance)
OR
-Intel Core i5 4460 ($219)
Motherboard:
-ASUS Z87 Deluxe (Bought $99)
Graphics card:
-Gainward GTX770 Phantom 2GB (Bought $299)
RAM:
-Kingston Hyper X Fury 8GB 1600MHZ ($95)
Power Supply (Not quite sure here):
-Cooler Master 450W V series ($95)
OR
-Cooler Master 550W V series ($115)
OR
-Cooler Master 650W V series ($125)
CPU cooling:
-Cooler Master Seidon 120V ($56.50)
HDD:
-Seagate Barracuda 1TB ($62)
SSD:
-Samsung 840 EVO 120GB (Bought $79)

Thanks in advance!

CASE:SPEC 3
mobo : ASUS ROG Maximus VII Ranger
cpu: 4790K..these two chips are so close to price its not worth getting the i5 over the i7...
ram: go with corsair 16gb low profile dimms..the 1600 c9 kits are very good
psu(power supply) i wouldnt go with the gs series..my two top choices go to the Cooler Master V850 or the Corsair Hx850/i
other good chioses are the Corsair rm Series 750w/
GPU: ditch the older series gpu and splash out rather for new current tech - minimum a Gtx 970 or last tech Gtx 770 at minimum.the nvidia cards are alot lighter on the power and heat side of things..even if they are more expensive

Cooling: without a doubt CM SEIDON 240..a friend of mine has one..and even with just the two included fans..in push or pull...it keeps his cpu way under 50 under xtreme load and he plays only online games like Minecraft ect.which have proven to be cpu/gpu/ram intense...
plus it has none of those pump software issues the corsair units have with the link software...

hd: storage go for the 3tb sata6gb version..costs almost the same as a 1tb..so go for more space
SSD for OS; Crucial mx100 ...it will be cheaper and just as reliable as the intel...plus for the price of the intel/samsung ssd ..you can get the crucial 256 or 512 gb version for less cost or same...more value for money and space...
dvd drive..doesnt matter what one...ive moved away from the samsung and lg ones and use an asus myself...very reliable.have had it for 3years now without a glitch...



if you need any other advice with the actual building and such..please pm me anytime
Its what i do..i biuld gaming setups..budget or not...thumb.gif

You dont need more then a 450 to a 550 watts PSU all those models are overkill.
Get a Cooler Master V550S aka VS aka VSM aka Vanguard instead.

Those particular models were chosen for the colour scheme. I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to PC building. My local PC store doesn't sell the Cooler Master V550S. So far, I've been told 450-550 watts is sufficient but other sources say that is insufficient and I should aim for about 800 minimum. Hypothetical situation: Let's say I overclock everything I can to the maximum safe running degree, what is the minimum PSU wattage I will need. Please refer particular brands and models to me.

I dont know who has told you 800 watts min but they dont know what they are talking about at all, a PC with a high end single video card with overclocks on EVERYTHING can be power by 550 watts, if the video card is a mid range model or lower then a 450 watts is more then enough if you dont have a video card at all in the system then even a 300 watt can power eveything and thats still WITH overclocks on CPU and RAM and a bunch of fans HDD/SSD´s and everything else you have in a PC.

We have a list you can use if you need help
https://www.overclock.net/t/183810/faq-recommended-power-supplies

Just note that not everything on the list is all great.
Welcome to OCN by the way.

in all honesty ..better to be safe than sorry shilka....if decides to Xfire or SLI later on and get into OCin..550 aint gon to cut it...
RM750
RM850

V700
V850

Hx750
HX850

something worth buying at least..its his first build..and i from personal stand point know how it feels regretting buying parts on a budget and regretting certain things afterwards and a psu is something that always does the most demanding thing of all-has to deliver oomph 24/7 for the system:thumb:

The Corsair RM is not worth buying at all.

ok...if you say so..
then what is worth buying? a cheapo 550w?
not my budget..not my 1st build either..this is the OPs first build..and you want to recommend a puny 550w?
your like the psu guru right?
seriously..no offense bro..but even if newer tech is less power hungry..its always good to be rather safe than sorry..

You dont need more then 550 watts unless you are going to have 2 video cards, there is more then enough headroom left with 550 watts, unless you are going to volt mod the video card or have 2 video cards, there is no reason to have way too much wattage that will just drop the efficiency of the PSU.
And the Corsair RM is not worth buying becasue its rubbish.

so you would have him buy a smaller psu..with less headroom for expansion and if he does expand to sli/Xfire maybe...hell have to upgrade the psu again?
doesnt make sense shilka...
were both tryin to help him..so wouldnt it be better getting a proper 700-850w psu from the start?
yes its wasted power..but having more to play with also makes the psu not over work itself by being to close to the max!
