700 wat at min its always nice to have some extra watts laying around for upgrades biggrin.gif

just going over your list and i'm sure it's just an oversight, but your order is for an ivybridge board/chip while impact is made for haswell (socket 1155 vs 1150) so might want to reconsider what it is you want to do exactly.

as far as power requirement, if you added up the TDP of your major power consumers, namely the haswell chip @ 84watts, and gtx780 @ 250watts. you are looking at 334watts. add another 50 watts for overhead and 100w of buffer you are looking at a max possible power usage of 500w with a VERY healthy buffer already figured in for any kind of power spike usage that can possibly happen. remember these figures are "full load" usage. most of the time you'd only be using like 30 watts TOTAL just surfing the net etc.

so yah... anywhere between a high quality 450w to 600w would be good for you (depending on how paranoid you are about the amount of buffer you like to have) just know that there is ALREADY a very healthy amount of buffer calculated into the 500w maximum possible usage number i gave you.

It is just an oversight. I haven't decided between the i5 or i7 Haswell, so we will see. Thanks for the good information! +rep for you sir biggrin.gif
