(Need a good power supply suggestion or two )


Hey guys I am trying to wrap up building a Video Editing machine that I have ordered some of the parts for and am about to

order the rest for and here is what I am looking at so far:


Processor: i7-3770K Quad-Core Processor 3.5 GHz

Motherboard: ASUS sabertooth z77


RAM : Most likely " Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800)" -- Unless you can suggest something better


Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 2 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Internal Desktop Hard Drive

SSD: Crucial M500 240GB SATA 2.5-Inch 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive


Graphics Card: Most likely EVGA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked with ACX Cooler 4 GB GDDR5 256-Bit Dual-Link DVI-I/DVI-D HDMI DP SLI Ready Graphics Card


I am looking for a good suggestion or two for a solid deal on a power supply that will power this machine and won't break the bank. 


Thanks a lot!

A GTX 770 generally requires a 600W power supply.  Any of these should work.




EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650 G 80 PLUS GOLD Certified 650W


CORSAIR RM Series RM650 650W


There are a few differences between these with the +12V rails, the EVGA has four, Enermax has two, and Corsair has one.  The EVGA also has the longest warranty.

I recommend NOT skimping on the power supply.  Too many people use it as a place to save money and wonder why they have issues with their build.  Think about it, your power supply connects to everything.


Here is an Antec TruePower Classic series TP-650C 650W 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Power Supply for $99.99


Here is a page explaining the 80 Plus Certification.


I'm running a COOLER MASTER Silent Pro Hybrid 850W
