Just a little insight from a little system I have been playing with recently, and my Kill-a-watt meter. My Mini-Lan system in my signature is a i5-4670k@4.6Ghz 1.34v, and it has a GTX770 Superclock in it for the GPU, overclocked also, you can look at the specs here Mini-Lan Rig this system has pulled 558w at the wall. And that system has even less electrical hardware than you have listed for yours. I would just hate to see you get that gorgeous system built, then have your PSU die and fry something along with it.

hm ok, than there will be no way around getting a new PSU. Any suggestions? Or still staying with BeQuiet? Should be good for the price. Optic is not that important as you cannot see it in the 540 wink.gif

I've honestly not used the Be Quiet brand, they are not readily available in the US, @shilka has a PSU testing thread here on the OCN in this psu section, http://www.overclock.net/f/31/power-supplies
I personally use the Silverstone Strider Gold Evolutions in my systems, partly because I am a Silverstone dealer, but mostly because I've never had an issue with one yet in more than three years....... My biggest recommendation is to not go "cheap" on the power supply, get a good quality, name brand unit that is made by a good OEM. The power supply is connected to every part of your system, and if it dies, it can take with it anything that's plugged into it. As @shilka says, the brand on the psu isn't as important as who the OEM is that actually makes the PSU.
