after using Newegg's PSU calculator, I got nervous.

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?

750w is fine.

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)

I basically just look at the recommendation for the GPU, and if your PC meets that by a decent margin then you're good to go.

780Ti recommends something like 620w. You're good to go unless you plan on an SLI setup.

750w is fine.


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:

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

A 780 ti is going to draw around 250w. Add your cpu and other stuff, you're looking at around 400-500w.
