I'm working on my first PC build and need to find out how much power I'll need. My build is as follows:

i5 4670k
Msi z87 gd65 board
Asus GeForce gtx 760
8-16 gb RAM(still deciding. Taking suggestions.)
Apevia x-Hermes case
Pretty generic DVD drive. So how much power should I get? Thanks for reading.

You don't want to cut it to fine. PSU work best at 50-60% load. 1 GTX 780 will run fine on 600-650w. 2 780's you will need more, 800w

My crossfired r9 270s will run on 650w psu barely. My question is why would you want to get a 600 watt psu that leaves no room for upgrades? In my opinion (unless on a tight budget) if you are going to go 650 you may as well go 700 just to be safe 500 watts is fine if you are 100 percent sure you will never need more power . Just my opinion
