With my current build, I am running 1 MSI R9 390 graphics card, but eventually I plan on upgrading to 2x with SLI and adding a lot more storage and fans. However, I chose to use a 750W PSU, and I'm realizing this gives me no room for upgrades. Is a 1300W PSU overkill? Would 1000W be more appropriate?
I am assuming the Wattage that PCPP lists is the maximum, and not the average. So mostly likely I will never get up to 812W that it lists... So maybe 1000W is the way to go?
