i'm new to all this. i know i want a really good Power Supply. i don't know much. can you guys help me?
Can you post a link to your build?
i just ordered a Z97 MAXIMUS VII. and i'm going to make it water cooled. 8gb .my cpu is i5 4690k. that's what i got so far.
Are you going to be getting an amd or nvidia gpu? What you have listed above doesn't give us enough info to really recommend anything. A link to all the parts you intend to buy is kind of necessary.
Something gold rated and made by seasonic, the've been in the game ~40 years and are consistantly well reviewed, evga gs, any xfx or the other brands they make for - http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/PSUReviewDatabase.html
550w is fine for a 4690k/970 or if you go amd gpu and wanna overclock ~650w would prolly be more appropriate.
