    Thanks for the reply!
    So you think i should go for 750w? I'm interested in the AcBel R8 800W Active PFC/Ball Bearing LED Fan/Coating PSU for a couple of reasons
    1st it's 800w so can power any upgrades etc i make
    2nd reasonable price
    3rd supports SLI
    4th looks cool with the blue LEDs etc..

    What do you think? Any comments?
