Is this enough?

Build: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Silent_Assassin/saved/zpmkcf

Note: Later on I will add a second 780 and I do plan on overclocking

Will this PSU be enough for my build when I add the second 780 because I have seen many different answers some say you can get by with a good 750w and others say you need a 1000w so I'm abit confused on what I actually need now : S

Also is Corsair RM series good because looking into some reviews and they say that the capacitors are cheap and I was wondering if this was true or not and if so how would it affect a system using it

Yeah I may have to go bigger, I will see what other people say to get a good idea which way to go on this

I have decided to go with a 1000w since it will allow more head room in terms of adding more HDD's etc.

Thanks for all the replies

Power consumption is not TDP. A system with dual 780's won't draw 500W

Total system power consumption with a GTX 780 is somewhere around 400W. Even if you add another one, you're not going to need a 850W unit

Sure a 550W would be perfect for that scenario. Now add another 780. You definitely won't need a larger PSU than 850W for that.

may be advised to move up to a slightly larger PUS
