I'm building my 1st computer and would like to know how many watts I need.

My specs are:

Intel i5-4690
Gigabyte GTX 970 (G1 gaming)
Asus Z97-Plus
Corsair H60 cooler
4 Corsair AF120 fans with the LEDs
2TB SSHD
Asus 24x DVD-RW drive
16GB RAM

I don't know how many of those things munch on the watts but that's what I'll be packing into my case.

Lol, I doubt I'd ever get a 2nd VGC :p.

At the moment, I've only got the VGC, the motherboard, and case on the way. Waiting on my credit card to reset its available credit so I can buy the rest of the stuff. Why do you ask?

Oops... I might jump ship and get a 4690K instead. Also, I'm actually thinking about downgrading on the RAM too.
