Pay no attention to those advocating a PSU that's "just big enough". Buy the biggest QUALITY PSU you can afford. You'll never be sorry. It's the cheapest insurance policy you'll ever find for your rig. Stressing a PSU over time has far reaching implications. Personally, I never want my PSU to run at more than 50% of rated capacity.
