    Thumbs up PSU Help Please. +New Build Specs.

    I don't fully understand wattage and shit like that when it comes to builds, and I know I am gonna hurt some parts or bluescreen if I underpower my rig.
    I have put my specs into many calculators and they are throwing me numbers from 750w-1250w.

    Specs:
    Case - NZXT H440
    Mobo - ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+
    CPU - AMD FX-8150 Water cooling bundle (Cooler resembles Antec Kuhler 920)
    GPU - ASUS ROG MATRIX-R9290X
    RAM - CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 1600Mhz
    Case fans - 4x 2nd Gen FNv2
    Other fans - 2x IDK wtf they are, came with the radiator and are for it.
    HDD - 2x 1TB 7200 RPM Western Digital, nothing special.
    SSD - 256GB Samsung 840

    Any help? I would greatly appreciate it because of the amount of money I am putting into this. My build will be posted when it is finished sometime in September.

    750-850 should be just fine, i reccomend this.

    Always good to have a more wattage then needed psu so you can update your build in the future without having to buy another PSU but having a PSU that is to powerful then your current build will mess it up.

    Also I would recommend a different GPU manufacturer, maybe Gigabyte or MSI.
