Uh, I'm kinda new to this whole building pc thing. I dont know what power supply to use with my fx 9590 build. Because of what I have heard about the fx 9590, I need to be careful on what I pick. Bare in mind I have already bought a 9590, so I'm not here for you to moan on about it and recommend the 8350 instead. So here's what I have so far for my build:
Processor: AMD FX 9590
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 750ti (Will upgrade to 970 maybe in the future, 960 at the very least)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA UD3 R5
Cooler: Noctua NH-D15
Case: Corsair Air 740 ATX Full Tower
Those picks are locked in and cant be changed. So yeah, what power supply would you guys recommend? Is 850w good enough? You also need to consider that I'm upgrading the gpu in the future, maybe 1 or 2 years time. Any help would be appreciated. Bare in mind I'm a total novice when it comes to picking pc parts so going all technical with me wont help in any way.
I was considering the rm 850, but I'm unsure if that's overkill, or just right, or not enough.
