Default Need Suggestion

Hello Everyone!

I'm getting:
Intel Core i7-3930K 3.2GHz
G.skill Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 1600MHz
Asus P9X79 DELUXE 64GB DDR3 Intel Motherboard (optional and I may change my mind on this one)
NVidia GeForce GTX690 4GB
Corsair H100i
Thermaltake Level 10 GT Chasis.

Which PSU would be good enough for me?

Possibly a 800-850W unit will suffice, assuming that you do get a good unit from Corsair, Seasonic or Silverstone, just to name a few.

Where are you buying from?

A high quality 650W will be enough. GTX 690 uses about 270W during heavy gaming, and any good 650W unit will have 2x8 pin connectors.

Since it seems you haven't bought the hardware yet, I would strongly recomend against GTX 690. GTX 670 2GB SLI performs the same and costs much less, while GTX 670 4GB SLI costs the same and performs better on high resolutions. For 670 SLI, you would need 750W since few 650W units have four PCIe connectors by default, and 670 SLI uses about 50W more power than a single 690.

If you're only gaming on 1080p, a single GTX 670 handles everything great.

If you don't do anything heavily multithreaded, you would be better off with LGA1155 and i5-3570K. If you do use heavily multithreaded apps but your needs aren't on a professional level, then you would be better off with LGA1155 and i5-3770K.

I'm assuming money isn't a concern with those proposed specs though.

Yes, money is not a concern! I'm both a gamer and a VFX maker! So need high-end config.

I agree with the suggestion for 670 SLI instead of 690 still.
