There is never anything wrong with buying a beffier PSU to last you but I'm saying Thermaltake are not the best for your money really. They cost pretty close to what the highest of quality parts are at except are not in the same quality bracket.

I bought out the 750W Tt ToughPower and a 226BW a few months ago, they were a nice buy, the monitor really nice, no ghosting, perfect for movies too, but if your going to go with SLI or Crossfire u might want to go with a different PSU, the 750W only have 1 x 6 pin and 1 x 8 pin so it kinda limits you.
