GTX Titan and Recommended PSU

Okay I am building a desktop for a customer and he wants a 3 way SLI on the GTX Titan. It will also have a Intel 3970x and a Rampage Extreme motherboard. Now my main question is this, would a Corsair 1200i work with all that or should I use a higher wattage PSU like a EVGA NEX1500 or a LEPA G-Series 1600?

What does PcPartPicker's recommended wattage say? The higher the wattage the better, but also look at the amps.

I would say the Corsair 1200i would be good, but with OC and you might be cutting it close. I tried to put it together it said 1000 watts. I don't know the reviews for the other PSU's, but I've used the 1200i with not problems.

Oh my, that's a lot of nice parts. What are you planning on doing with it? The corsair 1200i would be okay, it's a wonderful PSU, and should have plenty of wattage. Though if you overclock all your cards and your CPU it might get a tad close. The EVGA PSU is rock solid also, but would be kinda OP. I haven't sen anything about the enermax PSU recommended below, but you might wanna check that out also.

Don't get a Titan.Get a 780 and upgrade something else.
