    Hi all

    My first post.

    I have just ordered my new internals for a gaming PC i am builing. i have built office Pc's before and have just used 450W PSU's but this is my first Gaming PC.

    I have put a list of the components i am going to be using but am unsure as what size PSU to use.

    I was thinking of a Corsair TX750w, but i have heard that if the PSU isn't large enough it tends to fry things.

    I have read the Graphics card and CPU cooler i am planning on using are large power users.

    My PC spec was inspired by the DEC issue of Custom PC AMD article. I do love AMD but once the sandy bridge came out they seem to of fell behind until recently.

    anyway here is the list, would a 750w be good enough all advice and opinions welcome.

    [U]Proc[/U]
    AMD FX-8350 4GHz Socket AM3+ 16MB black edition

    MOBO
    Asus Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX SB950 DDR3

    Proc Cooling
    Corsair Hydro Series H100 High Performance

    G/card
    Gigabyte ATI Radeon 7950 HD 800MHz 3GB PCI-E HDMI Windforce 3X OC

    RAM
    Corsair 32GB DDR3 1866MHz Vengeance Memory

    SSD
    OCZ 120GB Agility 3 SSD

    2nd HD
    Seagate 2TB Barracuda Internal Hard Drive


    I am NOT planning on overclocking anything either, in case that makes a difference


    Thank you for reading, sorry if its a bit mix and match,

    Swanny

    Did I miss something?

    On a more serious note the TX750 is more than up to the job.

    550W will suffice from what I can see.

    750 is more than enough. The Be Quiet mentioned above is a great choice.

    550W is plenty as others have said. If you're planning to get a second card for CrossFire, you might want a 650-750W though.
