My System Specs


There are both pros n cons for Modular vs Single Rail Design.....ensure:
1. The Wattage of your PSU is adequate for your final build.
2. Ensure the PSU has the correct Power Pin connections for whatever GPU you choose
3. Ensure that the Amperage provided by the Single Rail or Multiple Rails is adequate for your GPU
4. Stay away from cheaper PSU's, nothing more frustrating than diagnosing and repairing a PSU problem.

I personally like to ensure I have a "buffer" of 150W or so above and beyond what my System requires....this will ensure longevity of my PSU as well as some additional headroom for future expansion.
PC P&C, Silverstone and Corsair are just a few PSU's that I tend to speak very highly of.

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico
