I've bought all the parts for this build other than my power supply, as I honestly don't know how much I need. I am going to be running 6 monitors( I don't know if this makes a difference) through this eyefinity 6 7750 card, and I wont be gaming or anything, just work(trading). I don't mind spending a bit extra for more power than I need, but is having too much power bad, for some reason?
Right now I'm leaning toward a Corsair 500 watt modular. Too much, too little? The builder page is telling me my estimate is around 230 watts usage, so it seems I may have too much, but I'm not sure how running 6 monitors at once changes things.
