well.. look at my build.. I don't need 600W.. maybe 500W?

I do have a 430W which will power my future system (Q6600), but some people say to get more power..

I don't need SLI, I might have 3HDDs in total in the future too

Edit: Which one would be better for my needs.. as I do not SLI.. the Corsair is 107$ here.. the 600W OCZ is 109$ so 2$ more.. it SHOULD be better right? lol

you really getting a 6800GT? One word: WHY???

I would recommend atleast 600W (HX620) for your quad core setup. It will be good for your next build, granted it's about the same calibur as this one, not too high end, but definitely not low end either.

With that tuniq, your naturally going to want to overclock the quad, so give yourself ample room and get a bigger power supply.

Even a 300W power supply is going to be more than you'll need for that setup, assuming you don't overclock anything. I'd say just save your money, don't waste it on a high power unit, get a high quality 400-500W power supply. Look to Seasonic, FSP, Silverstone, and Corsair(basically Seasonic).
