I'm getting this system fairly shortly and I'm stuck on the PSU. Currently have a 650w and not sure if it can handle in this new system.

Chip - Intel Core i7 3930K Processor LGA2011 3.2GHz 12M Cache 6 Cores
Cool - Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H100 High-performance CPU Cooler
Mobo - Asus RAMPAGE IV EXTREME X79 8x DDR3 GLAN RAID USB3 SATA3 4-way CrossFireX E-ATX
GFX - Asus ATI HD7970 3GB GDDR5 2MDP/HDMI 3DVI
SSD - OCZ 240G RevoDrive 3 X2 PCI-E SSD
RAM - G Skill 16G(2x8G) DDR3 1600MHZ PC3-12800 CL9(10D-16GBXL)
Case - Thermaltake VN10001W2N Level 10 GT Full Tower Case


Also, is it safe to run a PSU that will oversupply?

I think 650 will be fine, i run a similar system from a 750 thermaltake but I have an extra video card (2x540s) and 3 extra hard drives
computers draw power, the psu doesn't "push' power, so yes its safe to run any size you want, as long as it can keep up with demand

long story short, run a 2kW PSU if you want, your computer will only draw what it needs

I cannot recommend Silverstone PSU's enough.

PLENTY of grunt (the 850W PSU has something like 70-72 amps on the +12V rail)
Reasonably priced, and a mate of mine who abuses the ass out of his parts (there's OCing your hardware... then there's OCing it and leaving it in a timber cabinet while you're at it...) has only just had to retire a 650W PSU that he's had for 6-7 years (at one stage running two OC'd nVidia 7800GT's, a P4 and about 6-8 HDD's)

not sure what you're referring to as far as 'over-supply', but if you're thinking it might be along the lines of 'too much wattage' it's as teq said...

Also, if you're after a rough guide (and I can't say that I've used any lately, but I certainly did when I was building my last system) google about for 'PSU Calculators' and don't rely on just using one, hit a few and see what your likely power draw is.

Big killers (if not over-clocking) are running multiple video cards and then tonnes of storage devices. If you're not planning on OCing, the only really 'hungry' device I see there is the video card. ~650W SHOULD cut it, but in my experience (which is more my opinion) won't leave you tonnes of room for loads of extra hdd's etc.

The only thing you'd want to check really is if it has all the connectors you want.

Is this PC for graphics rendering? Personally if I was spending a bucket load of money on a 2011 socket I'd want to have a really good PSU.

You're wasting the money on that system and you're wanting to be stingy on the PSU? ...

Have you even thought where you're going to put the H100 in that ugly ass Level 10?

Not for me, but it isn't that bad, luckily taste is subjective

'too much wattage'

F*** I hate this Americanism.

It's 'too much power'. (Power is measured in Watts).

Even worse, 'amperage' - f***n really, America!? Really!?

It's 'too much current'. (Current is measured in Amps).

m3nt4l, can you imagine the dust that would collect!?

Really? You think that power is a better word for describing electrical energy than wattage? The purpose of language is to convey meaning, which word do you think more appropriately conveys the intended meaning?

It's probably not even an "Americanism".
