Overpowered.

Seriously, unless you have five hard drives and Quad SLI you won't need anywhere near that kind of power. Even top-end systems can survive quite happily on ~500w. (Assuming you don't use a crappo $5 model.)

It's still overkill. And I don't trust Hiper as a brand.

Here's a pretty comprehensive PSU ratings list that may help with your decision.

I can't vouch for it being a perfect list, but it seems about right. For your proposed specs, I'd be looking in the tier 2/3 psu's. Avoid anything on the tier 4/5 for certain as they all look like crap units to me as well. FYI - Hiper is listed as tier 4, so they don't recommend them either.

600gigs? wtf are you gonna do with 600gigs. You should save the other 320gigs and buy a better processor and get a 7950gx2 instead

Alot of people are reporting having driver issues with the 7950gx2. I think it's improving a bit, though still sketchy.

But, using that money on a e6600 Conroe wouldn't be a bad idea at all.

You might consider the x1900xtx rather than the x1950xtx, as it is cheaper. The performance difference is negligible unless you are planning to do Crossfire, where these new cards are supposed to do much better than their predecessor.

A PSU that powerful could potentiallly create a lot of heat as well, which is another consideration.

There are many things you can do with drive space. I myself have 1.1tb, and I know people who have servers which can store obscenely high amounts like 5tb.
