Is my psu strong enough for the build, ive asked on linustechtips forum but they are only elitists.

edited September 12 in PC Builds
So the spec´s are as follows: 

R7 2700x (will oc to 4.2 once i have it ;)
Msi x470 gaming plus
Msi Gtx 1080 Ti gaming x 
1x samsung Evo 860 500gb m.2
1x Intel 530 Ssd 240 gb 
1x Corsair Gt 180gb Ssd
1x Fractal Celsius S24
Phanteks P400 Tempered glass

PSU: Evga SuperNova Nex750b, did i brainfart and made a major cockup and this PSU wont be able to power the parts above ? 

Before you start answering people i do NOT want to hear how bad or how poor the PSU is but is the 750w Enough for a 2700x  OC with a Msi Gtx 1080 ti Oc... 

If the PSU is poor/bad, i will have to sweattalk my wife and go above budget.

Psu has been used with this: 

R7 1700@3.925ghz 1.365vcore 
Asus B350m-a (no vrm heatsinks)
same ssd´s
Nzxt s340 case with 2 fans
Same AiO

    Hello,
    I believe 750w is more than enough for your current rig. But if you want to be sure, check it on the PSU calculator in the link below.

    Hi, Mattias.

    I actually have a very similar build, though with a more power hungry CPU (Xeon E5 1680 V2, OC to 4.0GHz) with a similar AiO (Fractal Design Celsius S36).  Also have an OC GTX 1080 ti, two SSDs (not M.2/NVME) and two standard 7200RPM HDDs.  So a fairly comparable system, I would say, and I've been running an EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2 ( https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438017 ) since January 2018 and still going strong after daily use.

    So yeah, I'd say that PSU is enough for you're system.  If you're still nervous about it though, take comfort in knowing it will at least last you the next several months, so you have time to replace it with a better one once you have some more funds.

    750 is fine for anything that isnt using sli or crossfire .  Well not anything but most things your build included should be just fine on 750.

    Did you get a good deal on that CPU? How much did it run you? Been keeping my eye on these but at around $400, i think im good with my E5-1650v2 for now.

    I got mine a few months ago for just below the current average:  $379.  Not the greatest deal, but considering the alternative of having to upgrade motherboard and RAM (especially with current DDR4 pricing) in addition to the CPU, I was willing to spend a bit more on the CPU to save everywhere else.

    i already had 32GB quad channel RAM and an X79 board.  While a full upgrade to Ryzen would have cost me at least $800 to get the same amount of RAM (and an upgrade to intel would've cost even more....), I figured I was better off going with the E5 1680 V2.  I was however pleasantly surprised to find the Xeon scoring better clock-for-clock than the Ryzen 7 1700 on most benchmarks I checked (though the Ryzen 2 is performing better than the 1680 V2).

    If you're still interested, I did just see a Xeon E5 1680 V2 on ebay for only $369.95:
