Hi all,

I'm looking for a gut check on the following build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/ohcrapim30/saved/pQDcf7

Goals:

  • 1440p gaming w/ g-sync
  • future-proof for the next 2-3 years
  • quiet and stable system
  • enthusiast-quality components

Areas of Focus:

  • is 550w really enough power for this build?
  • any gotchas with the 1080 rog strix gpu?
  • any concerns with the monitor selected?

Your insights and advice are greatly appreciated! Thanks.

550 watt is initially fine. If you really want to help in future-proofing it, or you're planning on upgrading it along the line, then a 650 wouldn't hurt.

Upgraded to 750 since it was the same cost. Thanks!
