Yes. Can't stress that enough. A good PSU is the heart of any rig. I would recommend a minimum 750 Watt PSU or better. Gold or Platinum rating would be best.

Building your own computer
How novice friendly are modern computers to build yourself? Much if any soldering needed? Is it just a case of "plug 'n' play", clip the parts into place like making an advanced Lego set, or am I looking at doing lots of sweating and mind numbing studying of manuels before I can put one together?...

A little fun computer building
I was wondering about power supplies and SLI.

Hasn't done as well as I had hoped. So I'm thinking you have to buy power supplies...
