I built my Current pc a few years ago looking to upgrade up to VR Ready Gaming and would like some suggestions on my upcoming build's power supply . the build says it requires a estimated 758 watts.

the video card claims 600 watt minimum since I am looking at twin sli cards should I go for 1200 watt psu to be safe? I would like to keep power bill costs down long term so A better rated psu for lower overall consumption would be great. Thanks

850 watts will be fine

The EVGA P2 850 at 110 with mail in rebate is a great choice if you dont care about MIRs

The G2 is also a great choice

750w+ would be reccomended.

And why such an expensive 980 ti? The hybrid is really bad all things considered.

It only cools the core with water, it's stupid expensive and it even uses a reference PCB! you won't be doing any crazy overclocks on that, which kinda negates the need for a watercooler.

Yeah you are right I should just get 2 titans instead and stop beating around the bush. Thanks for sorting me out there.

I don't really get what your trying so say, but its not a huge issue.

I'd recommend 1000, it's been proven that buying one with larger capacity does not harm performance and instead helps it because of the tendency of larger psus to have higher 80+ ratings.

This is bad advice.

Larger PSU s are just a waste of money, that money could have been put into getting a better quality power supply
