will you overclock your system?
it can increase your overall power draw up to 50% depending on how much you are overclocking.

I woudl say 550W would be enough for that rig if you don't plan to add a second gpu

try to check phaedrus PSU calculator:

550 - 600 watts is enough.
Better to take a good 550 psu as an crappy 750 psu!

If you ever want sli or max. OC you should take a look on 750 / 850 watts psu´s like the HX750 from Corsair.

I think a 750 watt will do, but whatever make you get make it sure its a reputable company like Seasonic.

The amount of times i have seen a mr magoo make in a computer where they saved money to get a bettger cpu/ gpu.

PSU is one corner i never cut - heart for the blood - psu for volts thumb.gif

No just for 450 watt. But the important thing about the PSU is the efficiency and the efficieny normally varies with the load level from the PSU.
This means the PSU has a max. efficiency for example 90% and will lose some efficiency with higher or lower load. So its possible that a 90% PSU has only 85% efficiency at 20% load.

But in the end this is more important for Servers and PCs which running 24/7. Just make sure its a high quality PSU with min, bronze, silver or gold certifikation. Try Corsair, Seasonic, rosewill. Dont try to save money when taking a 750 watt psu instead of a quality 550 watt psu.

Yes pick a better made lower wattage model over a lower quality but higher wattage model
