Hey guys, im hoping to undertake my first pc build within the next few weeks and would appreciate any help from kind knowledgable folk I have spent countless hours researching reviews and gather prices, but am stuck on what PSU to go for, and how much power will be needed.
The build will go something like this:
Case: Storm Enforcer or Obsidian 550d
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3
CPU: I5 2500k (Overclocked to 4.2/4.3 Ghz)
Cooler: Gelid Tranquillo Rev 2
GPU: 1280MB EVGA GTX 560 Ti Classified
Ram: 8GB Corsair Vengeance LP 1600 Mhz
128GB SSD, 500GB HDD etc
I have been looking at Be Quiet PSU's as they seem to be good for efficiency/low sound have a gold rating etc. However, what wattage would i be needing for the above system? 600W, 680W, 700W? Or are there any other good PSU's anyone could suggest?
Probably worth adding that im building the machine primarily for gaming, and might overlock the ram a little bit, and possibly overclock the GPU a tad as well if i'm feeling brave
Thanks in advance for any help.
