Default Thoughts on this build.. I'm about to order parts!

Hey all first time on the forum. I have figured out the parts for my build and now I'm just trying to get some opinions on it before I commit, I have already been told by numerous people that this is a great build.... Your thoughts??

I'd change two things.

1. 1250W is waaaayyyyyy overkill. A good 750 Watt PSU would be enough.
2. Drop the CPU back to an i5 4670K. The difference in performance is menial, and they are usually quite a bit cheaper.

The 750W recommendation is for the whole system. If the cards could really draw 750W on their own, the cooler would have to be insanely large and wouldn't fit in most cases.

Read http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages..._review,9.html. You will find that a fully built core i7 with one GTX780 draws about 340W with the GPU under 100% load, and about 230W of that is from the card. So, 340W + 230W for the extra card = 570W. So, 750W would be more than enough for the entire PC

Seasonic X-760. That should do you nicely.
