Default Re: PC build help/suggestions on components.

Specifications, like how many amps(especially for the +12V rail that will power the motherboard and CPU). If the components need more current(amps) than the PSU can deliver, performance and reliability will suffer. Better to err on the side of too much vs too little(so the PSU can deliver all the computer needs, without being stressed to the max). Does the graphics card have a power connection? That adds to the load. Do you have lots of hard drives(my rig has 6 internal drives)? That adds to the load.
Gigabyte X79/intel i7 3930K, 32GB RAM, HD/Native, 192 IO
