ignore the PSU for now, i want something that will have enough watts to supply power to all the components above, and be future proofed for the RTX 30 series specifically the 3080ti, if that's what it is gonna be called.

there will also probably be 2 x 10TB HDD added in the future.

You should be fine with a high rated 750W psu like gold or platinum rating, though if you ever want to consider SLI i’d go no less than a 1000W. Honestly you could probably get away with a 650W but me personally, i’d rather have some breathing room.

1000 watts would be excessive unless you had a couple graphics cards in this system


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

If you wanna rough estimate for a worst case scenario for 3080 ti power draw, i’d use a heavily overclocked 980 ti or 1080 ti or 2080 ti power draw figures, that should ball park it for you, it might overshoot it but better to overshoot than undershoot.

Get a high quality 750W unit, refer to this list when making your choice:

I recommend Tier A or higher, A+ ideally. In truth 650W would easily be enough, but the extra cushion of 750W is better, 1000W is massively overkill.

Personally I’d recommend either this: https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=220-P2-0750-RX

 

Or this if you don’t mind semi modular, and it saves a few bucks: https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=210-PQ-0750-X1

 

the PQ is the one i have in my X570 rig and I love it

 

But the corsair one is also a very good unit, just also very expensive, you’ll get just as good quality from an EVGA unit for a bit cheaper. 
 

If price is irrelevant go with the Corsair unit.
