    Hi guys!

    I'm building a new Pc and i'm currently looking for a good psu.

    Specs so far:
    3750K (OC) - With Evo Fan
    R7850 (OC) - Possible CF in the future
    Corsair Vengeance 2x4 GB
    Samsung 830 SSD
    1TB HDD WD
    ASRock Extreme 4 or perhaps the MSI-G45? or the UD3H?
    Case P182 (Using from old rig) - Antec P182 Gun Metal Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel...


    So, i'll will be running with an OC CPU and in the future possible 2x7850 thats overclocked. My case currently got 3 120mm fans with space for another one.

    Also im curious about which mobo to get. I've pretty much narrowed it down to these:
    MSI Z77-G45 - PCI Express 3.0 x16/0 or x8/x8
    ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 - PCI Express 3.0 x16/0 or x8/x8
    GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H - PCI Express 3.0 x16/x8

    Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, L...

    Listed in price order, cheapest first.
    The MSI is 20$ cheaper than the ASRock.
    The ASRock is 24$ cheaper than the GIGABYTE

    Note that the prices are different where i live.

    As for the PSU i've currently looked at the Antec HCG 620M: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371059

    And the OCZ ZT 750: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...tem=17-341-052
    But some have problems with Ozc and others got some problems with cable length etc.

    i would prefer a modular PSU since if i'm going xfire later i wont have those extra cables taken all the airflow. But if you can convince me to get a non modular then go a head :p

    But ofc others will also do :)


    Thanks

    Okay, updating the original post - It would be very nice if the PSU is modular.
    And i'm not quite sure whether to go with a ~650W or 750W, how well the different models are future proof etc...

    Yea but the thing is that there is a 44$ difference between them and thats quite a lot. Else i would probably have gotten the M12II.
