Why go triple 970's when you can get a 1080 for the same price?

I'd go HX850i as I have one and it's not much more than the 750. It will power pretty much anything you need.

1070 will be much more expensive than the 480

PSU wise it actually doesnt matter. The 750 would easily be enough.

Given the new technologies used and the impressive reduction in power draw a 750w PSU should be more than enough to cope with the new cards in SLI, I was using a Fractal 650w PSU with the 4790K and 2 GTX950s and I rarely pulled 280w from the wall.

If you want an idea of just how much power a system can draw check out TTLs video.

you realise that two 480's are being compared to a single 1070 right?

This is just sounding like a wish list

yeah you have right but for me is the first sli/crossfire but maybe you have right tom the alternative is seasonic x750 or seasonic p760 for the cost is a good choice second you?
For the moment i take the PSU only then the rest of hardware maked a little research i have decided for a Coolermaster serie v700/850!!!
