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
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

G.Skill Ripjaws X 16gb PC2133
Asus Blu-ray burner
Seasonic X650 PSU
Patriot Pyro 128gb SSD
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
