O/P I would have went with a 750w/850w unit myself, 1000w is a tad overkill for your system IMHO. I can't see your sys pulling more than 600w at FULL load & OCed. You'll prolly lose a tad of efficiency but otherwise should be Ok, aside from spending more $$$ than necessary... I'm a poor man anyways, always bargain/rebate hunting! Glad there was no damage You actualy wear underpants?
