Need PSU Suggestion For New Computer - Please Help!
Hey I really need a suggestion or opinion on what PSU to go with for building a new computer. I currently own a Corsair 650W and use that with a Intel Core 2 6700 and a Geforce 480 running fine.
The new build will consist of:
Antec 1200 (Using All The Internal Fans)
Intel Core i7-940
HP Blu-Ray Drive - BD340I (New at Best Buy)
Corsair XMS3 6GB CMX6GX3M3C1600C7
Nvidia Geforce 480
Soundblaster X-Fi Music Card
Happauge TV Tuner: HVR-1600
Corsair Cooling Hydro Series - CWCH50
About 5 USB devices (Flash, mouse, keyboard, wirelress adapter)
Any feedback is greatly appreciate, thanks!!!

If you like your Corsair 650W then I would recommend getting another one or reusing the one from your existing system.

How about if I decide to overclock the system? Think 750W be ok or should I step it up more?
Ive also heard 650W is to low from people at work but I am not sure.

A 650W PSU is perfectly fine for a quad core cpu and a single graphics card.
