So I am looking to run http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ycQwHx (eventually will be running two of those 970s) I am wondering if that power supply is enough for the cpu to be overclocked and the gpus both to be overclocked rather far. Eventually i am going to buy the second gpu this summer most likely and water cooling for the cpu probably a h100i.

Any suggestions you have on the build would be greatly appreciated. I just want a build that can allow those 970s to run all out.

That power supply is more than enough. You could step down to the 750w unit and still be fine. Good choice of power supply. The EVGA G2 units are made by Superflower and are one of the best available right now. Good choice.

I also like the choice of the h100i. Many on here will tell you to get a high end air cooler instead. As long as you have room for the radiator, I prefer them over air coolers as you don't have to worry about ram clearance and if setup properly, the h100i ejects the hot air straight out of the case. Just my personal preference on that one though.

Hmm. Great looking system! One thing is, I would maybe go with a different 970. The MSI Gaming 4G, Gigabyte G1, or ASUS Strix are all good (I'd prefer the MSI out of those) if you're going for a top of the line 970. I have the base short Zotac one and love it, but any of those three would be better than the EVGA for just a few dollars more. EVGA really dropped the ball this generation. thumb.gif

Also good choice on a SSD. I've been meaning to pick one up myself. One thing however, I would perhaps get a HDD for storage/data in addition to that SSD. You'll fill that thing up fast and want more space for just data.

I love my WD Black and Seagate Barracuda.
