Hi, I am about to build a PC for the first time. I have all my parts selected except the PSU. What do you think would be a very safe PSU to go with?
Here is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TywyZL
I've seen a lot of builds similar to this with a 750W or 850W PSU. I was thinking about going with a 1000W EVGA or Corsair in either Gold or Platinum to be safe and leave room for additional hard drives and USBs. Is a 1000W a good choice? I noticed that the 1300W EVGA Gold is the same price as the 1000W right now. Is there any reason I shouldn't go with that over the 1000W if they are the same price?
Also, This build shows 2 GTX 970s which is what I am designing my build around. However, I will not be buying the second GPU right away. So, the comp will be running less wattage for a while before I upgrade. Will this make a difference in the decision I should make?
Your advice is greatly appreciated.
