850w is way overkill for that system, so an 1100 would be a complete waste of time and money. Tagan make some sweet PSU's though and their support forum just happens to be here. Nice system though fadz23q Whereabouts in Australia are you from? I'm in Brisbane

no its not good advise if someone was building a normal machine but he wants to build the ultimate gaming monster so he is better going for as high as possible.

It doesn't matter. Our very own NickS ran the top of the line OCd gaming system stable on a 500W enermax.

yeah i know it will run fine but a 500w isnt really classed as being a high end psu a 850 is only just, if he wants people to be wow'd buy there specs then thats he only thing that could be upgraded if he wanted to like he says he wants it to be a beast not run of the mill.

Ay :eh: :eh: That 850W PSU would run 8800GTX's in SLI no problem at all, and even a lower spec'd PSU from a reputable manufacturer would still run it/them. A 750W PSU would have been fine....

If you still don't believe me, then perhaps Nvidia can persuade you

for the 3rd time as it says above i know that psu will do the job fine! i am just saying that as a ultimate gaming monster you want people to be wow'd by your specs and to do that as he wants the best he can buy then a higher psu would do the job

Well, if you want 'wow' factor ditch the oversized psu, amd mobo and proccy and get yourself a core2duo or quad core on a p35/680i as suggested...

I'm pretty sure you can pick up an e6600 for a similar price to that x2 6000+

Intel completely outperform amd at the moment so your money would be better spent with intel my man.

I hope you don't mind the suggestions as you seem sold on amd but trust me, intel is the top dog right now...

Also, I've never heard of anyone being wowed by psu wattage!!!

Whatever you decide on eveyone on here will be willing to help, if you need it

Oh, and welcome mate

Sorry but PSUs don't "wow" many of us.

They are just there to power the "wow" stuff, like an 8800.

The only person you should be worried about "wowing" or impressing is yourself as you will be the person using the rig
