Evening all,

Just making sure this is all good before I purchase everything else.

Already bought the case and CPU Cooler. Buying everything else tomorrow.

Also, Im planning to heavily overclock....Would a 750 be alright with 2 1080's with everything oc'd?

It would be plenty. Even 650 watts would be enough.

yes it would. still will never need an 850 watt psu with this hardware.

PSU's calculators aren't accurate hence why they say you need such a overkill PSU. A 650 watt PSU would have no problem running this build with two cards and overclocked.

Used Outer vision PSU calculator

wait, you made me wait for you to use that calculator site? this tool was never accurate and with it's update in 2015(?) got even worse. you're better off looking for a) GTX 1080 SLI reviews and b) owners on enthusiast forums that have measure system load consumption. some examples, and the numbers they show:

the last one on an overclocked i7 6850K.
