Your looking at about 750 watts honestly. 850w if you want to be safe. Also I'd like to say, wait until May 27th because that's when the GTX 1080 comes out and it's pretty much a lot better then a Titan X, which means it's a lot better then the 980 ti and non reference models will be around 650$, give or take.

EDIT: Also nice Skyrim For Pimps reference with Goat Nibbler and all. Love the name.

thanks for the help, 980ti is there for reference $ wise anyways (same price basically/just forgot to add that) and the name is awesome!!! :) thanks and once again thanks for the help.

750W is more than enough for a 980 ti and the GTX 1080 as it only needs about a 600W PSU(for the 980 ti).

750W is more than enough for a 980 ti

650 watts will be more than enough even if overclocking.

nd the GTX 1080 as it only needs about a 600W PSU

500 watts would be sufficient for one 1080. Nvidia recommends a 500 watts psu and lets remember that they always exaggerate to be on the safe side taking into account people buying crappy units.....

Yeah when I said 600W, I meant it for the 980 ti which is why I put it in parenthesis after it.

For this build 650 watts would be more than enough even if you overclocked everything (there will be headroom left). With an 850 watts you can run SLI 2 980ti .

Just thought I'd mention XFX since no one suggested any alternatives for the Supernovas: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1650gts3x IMO the best value.
