I am building my new rig and have almost all of my parts, except a liquid cooler and case which I'm ordering tomorrow. Newegg suggested a 1016 watt power supply but honestly I'm confused as to why. Here's my specs:
Asrock Z77 Extreme3 mobo intel i7 3770k cpu Evga GTX 780ti 16gb of Vengeance RAM (Blue edition) (may be switching to Kingston) 1 Asus CD/DVD drive 1 32gb Solid State drive 1 terabyte hard drive Cooler Master Seidon 120XL CPU Liquid Cooler (Please suggest a better one if you can think of one) 3 Cooler Master Fans (might get more) NZXT Phantom Full Tower Case
My PSU is a Corsair 750w modular power supply. Will I be fine? --- PSN, Steam, GT: AppleJeZus FC: 3282-2984-1471 Asrock Z77 Extreme3 || Intel i7 3770k || 16gb Kingston RAM || EVGA GTX 780ti
Overclocking? If you think it's detecting my parts you're mistaken. That's not how the calculator works, you just fill out the form on your parts and it tells you the wattage. I haven't even put the computer together.
And 64gb. My mistake. That being said I'll only be using it for the OS. Also, Windows 8 (I actually like it) --- PSN, Steam, GT: AppleJeZus FC: 3282-2984-1471 Asrock Z77 Extreme3 || Intel i7 3770k || 16gb Kingston RAM || EVGA GTX 780ti
This is assuming worst-case scenario: 4 sticks of RAM, and extra SSD and HDD, every USB device drawing power, multiple case fans, a sound card, water cooling, an extreme overclock, and an aging PSU: http://i.imgur.com/nQxhFJd.png
I think it's safe to say that 750w is plenty for a measly liquid cooling setup.
No SLI for now, I'll do that eventually but I'll upgrade my mobo, cpu, and psu for that --- PSN, Steam, GT: AppleJeZus FC: 3282-2984-1471 Asrock Z77 Extreme3 || Intel i7 3770k || 16gb Kingston RAM || EVGA GTX 780ti
A 780 ti is going to draw around 250w. Add your cpu and other stuff, you're looking at around 400-500w. --- Corsair 500r ~ P8Z68-V Pro ~ i5 2500k ~ Hyper 212+ ~ Corsair 2x4gb ~ TX750w v2 ~ MSI 780 TF ~ F3 1TB ~ Crucial M4 128GB ~ Xonar DG ~ Tt Meka G1 ~ Asus PA248Q
