      I disagree... would recommend a 650W for a single 680, and 850W for SLI... so long as they are high quality units (xfx, corsair)

            A quality branded 600w unit would be fine to power a single 680.

              Nothing wrong with XFX for PSU's, they are Seasonic OEM's. Get a lot of complaints about XFX GPU's though but I have one and it's been fine, maybe I'm just lucky.

                No, Not Much Better for Gaming, the Differences are Minimal and that extra vram Helps in alot of Games such as Bf3 and Crysis 2 and will be much more future proof then the gtx 680.

                  Decided and ordered the hx650w should be more then enough for a single card.

                    Case and motherboard arrived today. 300r is going to be my temp case but looking at it in person it's pretty stunning for 60.

                    Motherboard was noticeably heavier then any I've had before, again another well built product.

                    now to wait for ssd, psu, gpu and then 23rd for IB!

                    note: forgot to order ram lol

                      Items recied so far,

                      Case: Corsair carbide 300r
                      Motherboard: z77 sabertooth
                      GPU: GtX 680
                      PSU: Corsair hx650

                      Items awaiting delivery

                      SSD: Mushkin 240gb
                      Ram: Corsair vengeance 8GB (2x4) 9-9-9-24 timings

                      Items recycled

                      Cooler: Thermaltake Frio (had broken fan mount, fixed with glue)

                      So essentially just waiting for Mr. Intel to release IB. Reason I'm updating is so other people can get a idea of cost/performance when I upload some benchmarks

                        Hope that RAM fits dude, is it the Low Profile heatsink?

                        If it doesn't fit, swap it for Vengeance LP, or the Mushkin Frostbyte imo

                        Good luck with the build dude, looking forward to pics

                          Was the low profile one but looking back at it my mushkin ssd is going to be bullied by the corsair case, psu and ram

                                Absolutely. Somethig like a VX450 would run a 2500K build and 680 problem free IMO.
