Overkill for pretty much anything you can come up with. Post your system specs and I can help find a better choice.

Default Re: psu ?

well im one of those guys that likes to have way too much power. I dont have a computer right now, but working on put one together. Right now i looking at all the options and finding out with brands are the best and which one aren't. Im going to be using a intel core i5 670 3.4Gz processor, WD 2 Tb HD, 6 or 8 Gb of DDR3 RAM, MSI P55-CD53 Motherboard - Intel P55, Socket LGA1156. Haven't got to the video card yet so i dont know about it. I'll be using a Cooler Master HAF 932 Full tower case. I probally could get buy with a 750 or 800 watt PSU, but me being me i want MORE POWER!!!

You will never need this PSU on such a system. Don't waste your money. The max that I could possibly see being needed (and this is for a crossfire/SLI) is an 850 watt corsair PSU.

850w is modular. You can remove unused cables. It keeps your case uncluttered, and helps improve airflow, as well as making cable management a whole lot easier.
