Also, thanks to all of you for helping. I am a college student working minimum wage in California. This setup has been a work in progress for 4 months so I don't want to ruin it when it's costed a hefty amount of my paychecks.

Be sure to claim that tuition on next years income tax! I'm telling you, those income tax rebates are always prime for PC upgrades :P

Whenever you have power concern woes, just look at reviews for the video card. Most have power consumption tests (using OCed hex-core i7s so even if you have extra stuff it'll be close). You'll find that most power supply calculators overestimate quite a bit, though obviously it's still better to go for wiggle room. But a (quality) 750W PSU is perfectly fine for your setup even if you OC the **** out of everything.

Newegg's PSU calculator is the worst, never trust it. That setup will run fine on a good 550W, so yeah, your 750W Corsair is fine.

I just tried out that PSU calculator. It seems horribly inaccurate.

32gb Solid State drive???

get 120gb? windows(7) already use 20-30gb (i think)


More like 15GB. The rest would be pagefile and hibernate file, which can easily be disabled once you've got 8+GB of RAM. Although your statement is still valid, 32GB is pretty tight. Having programs installed on a regular hard drive defeats the purpose of having a SSD.

a good psu can run a 690 with just 450W so buy a good psu it will save everyone in the house and doesn't turn unused every unused energy to heat
playing re6 with 8x sparse grid ss with 32xs(2x2 ss + 8 ms)+ mixed sample x128 + 32 forced anisotropic then I hear ps4 is powerful than my pc

Newegg's PSU calculator is garbage. All that would run fine on a 550w.
