Don't believe me? Run the specs through the PSU Calculator:

http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

Also, nVidia themselves say that the 770 requires 600w. Is it really worth it taking a risk to save $10-20?


don't know about anyone else, but i can never get that website to load.


It loaded okay.

I changed PSU's.

I have an older 650w Corsair PSU and I run 2xGTX660's and overclock my 2600k. People really overthink the PSU...

I am worried about that high profile RAM going to hit your Hyper 212. Get Vengeance Pro or Ripjaws instead.

Are these both low profile? Also, how can you tell? Is there any difference between these two aside from the model number including an 'a' in the first one.

Vengeance Pro is good enough, not exactly a 'low profile' design, but it does fit even under my NH-D14. The normal Vengeance series might be OK with the Hyper 212, but you can't use the leftmost RAM slot.

The difference? Nothing, just the colour

I went to microcenter today, and saw that I can get an i7-4770k for $80 with the same motherboard.

I can afford to spend $80 more. With the rest of my parts the same, would you guys recommend upgrading from the i5-4670k to i7-4470k?

Also, I already ordered all of the parts, except the mobo and processor. Thus, it would be inconvenient to exchange any other parts at this point in time.
