Hello,
I'm building a system using the i7-2700K on the Asus P8Z68-V/Gen3 motherboard with onboard video, 4 sticks DDR3/1333 RAM, 1 Intel Cherryville SSD, 1 1TB internal SATA HD, 1 Blu-Ray/DVD/CD-RW SATA drive, a few USB devices connected.

Some power supply calculator says I need less than 400W but that can't be right? Any suggestions?

Yup, that'll be bang on. My full fat 130W i7-920 with GTX580 tops out at 370W at the socket. The i7-2600K is a measly 95W processor. You'll be doing well to break 150W total system power.
