Default PSU question

What is the best Power supply for a gaming computer, was wanting around a 1000 Watt PSU? Was looking at the ultra 1000 watt because i liked it because you only use the cords you need make a computer look better. Is that a good PSU?

To be honest i haven't built it yet but i know the 1000 watt will be plenty, just wondering if the ultra brand was any good.

How much is your budget for the whole build... 1000 watts is WAY to much

It's a waste because you won't need that much. Whatever you do, buy a modular one so you can disconnect all the power connections you don't need. PSU's come with so many connections these days that it makes it so cluttered inside the case.
