mangoh,
Use this calculator to get a rough idea of power needed then add any additional equipment. To me I start with 600-700 w for killer single GPU rigs and for aggressive OC and multiple SLI/Crossfired cards then look to 800-1000 w.

Mangoh,
Have a look at Aria PC - Computer Hardware, Components, Monitors.. at lowest prices, im local to these so i dont buy using the delivery service. I collect, i cant fault them and i tell you now i bet if you see a product on there and then look elsewhere, aria price will be cheapest.

Go with a premium product for both, Corsair is hard to beat but I recommend NZXT and Seasonic. In the end it's like splitting hairs. Maybe see if you can find package deals with a Corsair case with the Corsair PSU with it in a bundle?
No one has got back to me most probably because I never replied back to them quick enough

I don't want to end up buying a PSU that can't power my Motherboard so I'm still as clueless as the beginning as to what I need.

Boss me around if you have to lol, I'll provide any further information if needed.
Depending on the size M I wouldn't go past the Corsairs mate and your budget too. From what my brother over there says the prices are resonable for gear.
For example this PSU is comparable to what we pay out here Corsair PSU Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650 Watt High Performance Power Supply- microdirect.co.uk and the 750 is just 14 pounds more (would be my pick though I do like the HX series)

What about this?

Will it work with my MOBO?

Views on deal?

mangoh,
That's a nice combo. Just note that the PSU isn't modular so the un-used cables will need to be arranged behind the mobo space and this shouldn't be an major issue. The power rating and claimed 88% efficency is good. I like the case only wish it had a clear side panel so maybe you could enjoy your handy work later with some lights or not? Check to see if Coolermaster offers a retro-fit clear side panel later?

Mangoh I know I am pain but check the dimensions with the Coolermaster HAF XM HAF XM(APAC only) - Cooler Master
mate you have stacks more room fornt SATA docks and heaps of drive bays ++++ and about the same price - that PSU I wouldn't chock a door with it - Corsair mate I know you probably are a bit strapped but in the long run you are going to be better off.

The case looks real nice with all blue or red fans and big ones at that whatever you prefer lit up and to work inside it a dream.

Well linne agree with the PSU except I would have myself preferred the HX 650 but the case I still think the XM is the equal of anything out there.

I was just doing some shopping at the OP provided link. I think the CoolerMasters are great, I love my Stryker but the look and function of a case is very personal. I also have a recent build in a Corsair 400R as well as a current build in a NZXT Phantom 410, they're both crazy good cases. I was hoping that the OP could find a combo deal on a Corsair case and PSU or maybe a CoolerMaster combo and get premium products on both.
