Do not get the Kingwin. May look pretty, but its performance is not there. Go with Corsair or Seasonic.

I take it you don't look at Kingwin because of the name? You should REALLY read the reviews before you say bad things about them. Their higher end PSU's are actually quite decent, and as is this one on it's review. However, their prices are still high.

My personal suggestion : Newegg.ca - SILVERSTONE ST1000-P 1000W ATX 12V v2.3 & EPS 12V 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

I don't like Kingwin, period. There are much better manufacturers out there.

if you have that much money for the computer you should consider getting a sound card and a HSF/ liquid cooler.

any amount of OCing would necessitate a better hsf than the stock one. Ill let someone else recommend a good one that will be a good fit for your case.
