Click here for my build. I do plan to pit in some LED fans and strips if that changes anything. I really need some help picking out a psu. Id like a few suggestions it needs to be sold at microcenter. Sorry for being so specific but it has too be from there.

the EVGA 750 G2 would be good: http://www.microcenter.com/product/429766/SuperNOVA_NEX750G_750_Watt_G2_ATX_12V_Power_Supply

microcenter still mislabeles it as the NEXG, just make sure you buy the one that says 750G2 on the box.

G2 is pretty good I heard, but go GS if possible

why? there is no 750 GS and outside of the 1000 watt size the G2 units are all better.

Antec, XFX, Seasonic, EVGA (G2,B2,GS) 650w is plenty.

Avoid the Corsair CX, Thermaltake TR units they like to push at Microcenter.

This list is out of date. That is actually just the OLD tier list copied from TomsHardware. Here is the current and more accurate list: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html
