so I plan on double loop system, kaby lake with maximus IX formula and a Strix GTX1080 card to be run off this
EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G3 Power Supply, P/N: 220-G3-1000-X1 I think I don't need the wattage but my build is specifically for the future as I plan on upgrading as I go and when the gpu gets long in the tooth maybe i buy another 1080 to catch up and squeeze an extra year or two out of the system.
would rather pay more now than later. So would that be a good choice for a psu is my question

That's indeed a badass PSU but you can spend less and get a 650/750W PSU and still have plenty of power even after you add another 1080 - unless you overclock the living hell out of them.



Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.

The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.

A (quality) 750w unit would be sufficient even OC'ed "To infinity and beyond!". And manufacturers seem to be focusing on power efficiency more now as Moore's Law gets long in the tooth.

If he adds another GTX 1080 as he said he would like the freedom to do and if he overclocks both 1080s to hell and back, then I have my doubts about that.

two independant loops to keep things cool so I do plan on maxing this system out. Just once I would like to hit some insane numbers and cost is not a problem.
I think I'll buy that psu and have lots of juice left in the can if I ever need it.
Thanks for the help as your opinions confirm my thoughts
