A decent 860W PSU will be plenty even for SLI. Or if you want you can get a 1000W but 1200W is waaaaay to much ;)

 

For example the Cooler Master V850 if you wanna stick with that brand.

Core i7 4820K  |  NH-D14 | Rampage IV Extreme | Asus R9 280X DC2T | 8GB G.Skill TridentX | 120GB Samsung 840 | NZXT H440  |  Be quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 650W

@benmaxwell47 Just an Idea, maybe a HDD? 1tb drive are pretty cheap. If you drop the size of the PSU (1200w is little bit over kill for maxwel cards) you could squeeze one in.

if you are planning to game on 1080p make sure you get a 144hz moniotor, because on a 60hz monitor it will tear so much

WD Blue 1tb = $50

I'd throw in a HDD, they're pretty cheap, also use something like http://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell/tool/psucalc/index.html to calculate how much power you'll need, I don't think you'll need 1200W even with SLI.

CPU: i7-9700k  | Motherboard: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Elite | RAM: 16GB's Team T-Force Vulcan 3000MHz | GPU: Zotac GTX 1070 8GB AMP!

lower watt power supply and if u can ddr4 be amazingly good but i guess if u can settle for ddr3 that is fine

My Cheap But Good Rig: I7-3770s, Intel Motherboard (actually made by intel), 16gb DDR3, Nvidia Gtx 1070, 250gb Samsung 850 EVO SSD, 750gb HDD, Evga 500 BR power supply

@PaulKolby

To go to DDR4 he would need to go to X99, a much more expensive platform.  Also try to type sentences that are coherent. 

 

Seems like a solid build, however you could probably drop to an i5 4690k if you aren't doing a ton of video work.  Definitely go with the HDD and the lower capacity power supply.  Great parts list though!

DDR4 should future proof your build.

Is 1000w still to much?

You could run 3 x GTX 980 cards off a 1000W psu. If you only plan on dual cards, then go with a 750W/850W. The EVGA G2 mentioned above is very good.

Do not consider DDR4. It is currently only available on the LGA2011-3 platform. It is relatively expensive. It will make little or no difference in game performance.

 

1000W psu is far, far to large for the build. A 650W psu would be more than sufficient. 750W if you are truly paranoid and choose not to believe the hard data. 850W if you plan to add a second gpu in the next 12 months.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

It is an estimate for the whole system. It won't be deadly accurate as every pc is different, but is a good guideline.
