Hello all...

I just ordered a new rig to upgrade my existing PC. New specs are as follows:

GIGABYTE x79-UD3 Mobo
Intel Core i7 3820 Socket 2011 (sandybridge-E) CPU
16 gigs G.Skill Ripjaws series Quad-channel kit
2x Evga Geforce GTX 680 FTW (2048mb RAM edition) in SLI
Corsair H100i Liquid CPU Cooler

and various HDD and 1 SDD for storage.

My question is...with all this new powerful hardware, will my existing Antec 1000w PSU
be enough to handle it?
 
Solution
Yes your antec can handle the system without a problem.
Since Antec is known to produce some quality PSU, I don't think there will be a problem with lower amp ratings.
