Default Power Supply

I'm currently working on a new rig, and want a big *** power supply to go with it. I don't know all that much about them and would like to have some feedback from people with experience in that area. Thanks

What are you putting into this rig. It will define how big you really need.

550W should handle just about anything.

I've decided to go with a 600w, just to be on the safe side. Thanks are all the ideas and help guys. A mod can lock this now
