Modified tier 4 power supply question
My build is the number 4, with three exception, I'm upgrading the CPU to the number 5, the ram is going to be 16 gb, and the video card is going to be the gforce gtx 570. My question is do i need a bigger power supply than the one specified for tier 4 if so which one is the best option?

thank you ^_^

RE: Modified tier 4 power supply question
Honestly, you should just consider yourself going for the Tier 5, you're basically already changing the core components so you'll probably want the recommended Motherboard to go with them and an aftermarket fan if your planning on overclocking. You can choose any SSD,HDD or case to go with them, they don't depend on anything else. You'll want to stick with the Tier 5 PSU as it's usually linked to how much power is needed for it's corresponding video card.
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922 CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K OC to 4.5Ghz CPU Cooler: Thermalright Silver Arrow CPU TIM: Thermalright Chill Factor III GPU: GeForce GTX 560 Ti Zotac AMP! SSD: Crucial M4 128GB HDD: Samsung F3 1TB Motherboard: ASRock P67 Extreme 4 Gen 3 RAM: 2x4GB (8GB) Corsair Low Profile 1600MHz Optical Drive: ASUS 24X PSU: 650W Seasonic 80+ Gold Sound Card: None (Integrated) Keyboard: i-rocks KR-6260 Gaming Mouse: Logitch Gaming G500 Monitor: Viewsonic 24" LED-vx2453

That is true.. i think i will go for the tier 5, another quick question. I don't want to overclock or at least not at the moment, do i need the after market fan recommended for tier 5 or can i just get the one from tier 4?

Yep you can stick with the Tier 4 one, it will allow for some overclocking, you just won't be able to overclock as much as if you had the Tier 5 cooler.
