There are numerous places that have PSU calculators available on the web, try a couple, seriously doubt you'll see any that will show close to 750 for your rig, a good 500 as I mentioned is plenty unless you plan to XFire in the future, then a 7-750 might be appropriate ;)

I wouldn't throw down $200 on an AMD. I'd switch over to Intel. I also wouldn't throw down $260 on a 270x. Your build comes to ~$930. You can do better with a rig based off a i5-4430 and a GTX 770.

With your build, it's a waste of money. You're paying double to get nothing extra.

If you're going amd the 8320 is best performance per price. the 8350 is 50 dollars for not much.
If you're going intel the i5-4570 or 4670k are both fine for the price of the 8350. They are cooler and use less power so you won't need a great cooler unless overclocking.

In some cases but intel has better cores. If you need 8 that is a good way to go, but most don't even use 4 at a time. Also if sli or xfire is needed usually 750 watts. If not then 500 to 550 is usually sufficient.
