So this my my config :
core i7 3770k
nvidia gtx 660 Ti SC +
16gb corsair vengeance might upgrade in future
2tb seagate 5400 HDD + 80GB HDD
Stock intel fan and 2 x 120mm fans.
In the future I might add a Corsair H100 :D
Should I get a 650W..? is it too much or less ?
I am gonna get a corsair TX series as it is cheap and silent. Please suggest me guys.
And I also have 3 intel mobos and 2xP4 , core 2 duo processor what PSU's should i get I wanna use them for creating a small render farm :)
Should i get individual PSUs or Can i get a 800w+ and connect all three ?
I am kinda a n00b when it comes to PSUs. The ones i have used don't come with any extra connectors. Please help me out.
And thanks for your time n thanks 4 reading this and answering :)

A Corsair TX series PSU will be more than adequate. As for the wattage, it all depends on what you're planning on doing in the future. Will you be doing a SLI/Crossfire configuration? If not, then a 650W PSU will be more than enough. Keep in mind that as the years go by PC components are becoming more energy efficient. If you're planning on getting a second GTX 660 Ti, then a 750W and up is what you'll need. For your second question about your 3 Intel Mobos, I'm not sure what to tell you. But my gut tells me that it'll be best to get indivual PSU's. Don't quote me on that though. Good luck!

Get an 850W + PSU to give you more headroom.
