I have just had issues with my 750W PSU and I'm about to contact the seller about it but I would like to know if the PSU I will be sending back is over kill or is perfect for my build as I never really knew what one I should get. I'm just going to list my specs:
Intel i5 3570K, ADATA 8GB 1600MHz GGDR3 RAM, GTX 660 Ti 3GB SC edition, Gigabyte Z77N-WIFI Mini-ITX motherboard, 1TB WD Black HDD and 120GB 840 Series from Samsung.
I currently don't overclock any of my hardware because I can play pretty much every game I'm interested in at highest settings with a playable framerate, however I will most likely start over clocking my GPU, CPU and RAM when I start to need more power. I'm not too interested in making sure it is future proof as when it is time to upgrade my hardware I will want to upgrade my PSU as well.
Also everything is in my Lian-Li PC-Q18 case with a PSU clearance of about 14cm or 5'' in length.
Basically I just want good efficiency for my gaming RIG I only want what will be sufficient. I would also appreciate some guidance as to how you would calculate how many WAT's you would need in your PSU for future builds?
Thanks in advance guys, Matt.
