That the Corsair HX750 recommended to you is rated at 60 amps/750 watts. Even being generous, and erring on the side of caution, you only need a PSU rated at 35 amps/550 watts.

Only way I would go with the HX750 is if you plan to upgrade to a bigger card later.

If you don't plan on housing multiple graphics cards, then why have a full ATX motherboard and a large case?

I'm going to downsize from my CM Storm Scout to an NZXT Vulcan, as I could never use up all of the drive bays in the Storm Scout, nor the additional PCI-E x16 lanes on my full sized ATX motherboard.

I might be able to save some money going the microATX route, and desk space too!

(But yes, I believe a 650W PSU should be enough. It powers my build below for reference)

The watt ratings is a measure of the maximum power it is certified to sustain. In a way you can think of it as is saying you can pull x amount of electrons through the wall into your pc without damaging the PSU (overheating, bursting into flames, etc.) A 650w model can support a GTX 580 so there is absolutely no reason to go above that. As has been said you could even drop to a 550-600w model and still be safe. The reason behind not getting an overkill PSU is to save money (rather, not waste it). A common misconception is that a 1000w PSU will always draw 1000W from the wall, not true, only what the computer needs it to provide and a little bit to account for the fact that they are not 100% efficient (i.e. computer draws 550w but you will measure 590w from the wall)

That corsair model is a very good one and will be plenty for you.

Edit: I may have glazed over someone else mentioning it, but Sandy Bridge uses a dual channel RAM architecture, you have a triple channel kit. I would suggest either this 4GB kit, or this 8GB kit, 8GB is preferred due to the low current price of DDR3.

I changed my mind, i will go SLI later on with 570, will the Corsair tx v2 750w be good enough then ? also will 2500k bottleneck ?
