First off the 1000 watt isn't over kill. What that higher wattage will provide is cool energy efficient operation with tons of operational headroom and years of capacitor decay before becoming an issue. With luck it will also survive a mobo/system upgrade or three before needing replacement.......this is future proofing and IMHO one of the best places you can go overkill without any downside other than possibly a slightly higher cost. Tommy that Corsair for 125.00 is an excellent value and if you look at the difference in cost from a premium 600 or 700 watt and you divide 35.00 over 5-10 years......come on for the peace of mind......it's a no brainer !

precrime3,
Yes a premium modular PSU will have most all cables you'll need. There are some nice cable extensions for the 4/8 pin that are handy when the oem won't reach if in some mid or full tower cases.

that one is currently unavailable. I heard that corsairs professional series offers extra long cables fit full tower pcs. I might get a 1000w because of the long life time. Also can any one show me a cable kit like linnmeyerhere?

I like the kit for the looks but the premium cables on that 1000 watt should only need this one cable and of course the others are available separately....that's why the kit is so great.

Amazon didn't have the x750 but the do have the x850:
Amazon.com: Seasonic 850W 80 Plus Gold ATX12V/EPS12V Power Supply - X-850 SS-850KM: Electronics

I did find a x750 through a 3rd party, but Im not sure how you feel about that. I never buy from 3rd with the exception of a few.

Then, theres the Corsair:
Amazon.com: Corsair Professional Series AX 750 Watt ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Gold (AX750): Electronics

Either of these are very good PSUs, and very efficient.
That would be my suggestions.

((FYI they are both essentially the same PSU. A Seasonic X series. The Corsair just has their name on it and some minor cosmetic differences))

It was asked before, but I figured I would ask again.......do you plan on upgrading your monitor? If not, what you are jumping into is a waste of money.
