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?

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.
