Get a 750W - 850W PSU. Something like the Corsair TX750V2 or the Antec 850W HCP

Need to ask shilka on this as he is the expert but Do know he has said over and over how cheap the CX is made and how over priced it is.

not a corsair TX as again they are over priced and have very cheap parts in them and you can find better PSU's for this price. Ask shilka...

Try picking one here.

550W is enough for your build and leaves room for a strong >18w pump if you plan on water cooling and such.

If you are overvolting that 780 past stock specs then i suggest to go with a 650W PSU off that list.

The Seasonic PSU you chose was better than that Corsair CX PSU, also a Rosewill Capstone would be a good PSU for you to use. Just pick the wattage you need and go with modular or non modular.

Nothing is wrong with headroom except you have to keep in mind if you have no plans on doing SLI in the future, then having more wattage is not any more "advantageous" than compared to a PC that has less wattage. If the PSU isnt loaded enough, the extra headroom will just be wasted cash that you could of spent on something else. Just keep that in mind.

100-200W headroom is okay but dont go overkill with it as too much wattage in a PSU could have "lower" efficiency the demand load is too small. Remember, youre not playing prime 95 and heaven benchmark 24/7, so your average power consumption would probably be a lot less than you'd expect. Considering you have that 4670k haswell CPU that is designed to be very power saving especially on idle.

This one cost a little more but should be enough for what you are going to do unless you plan on OC and OV your parts??

Unless you are going to overvolt your all you need is a 550 watts

The Seasonic G550 watts you started out with was fine

The XFX XTR is a fully modular version of the G but there are no reviews on the XTR yet

Only other PSU i will recommend in that price range is the Cooler Master V550S but thats not sold in the US yet

The Rosewill Capstone is also an option if you can find that on sale
