I'm working on getting a new Core i7 System, and I'm just wondering if this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817128008) PSU will provide enough power... Here's the system specs:

 

MSI X58 Platinum LGA 1366 Intel MoBo

Dual HD Radeon 4850's

Intel Core i7 920 CPU

3GB (It's Triple Channel Now.) Kingston HyperX DDR2 1066 RAM

Two 500GB Hardrives, @ 7200RPM's

Aforementioned PSU

And then just some IDE Optical Drive (Prolly switch to SATA though...)

 

(And ofcourse a 22" Wide Screen Monitor, and a Xion Solaris for the case...)

That's cutting it kinda close, but it is enough.

750-800w should be fine.but you might want to look into a modular one, they are a tad more $ but well worth is in my opnion

An EVGA tech actually told me that modulars are bad because they short out easier or something?

Humm never heard of that. I would think it depends on the manufactuer of the PSU
