What is the budget? For good and Cheap you have the XFX 650W Pro if you can spend a little more go with CORSAIR TX-650M or SEASONIC GOLD X-660

I'd recommend this PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139016
Alternatively, anything from Seasonic or Corsair (who mostly rebrands Seasonic PSU's) will be ideal if its wattage is above 550. Personally I'd recommend a ~600W PSU, anything above 750W is overkill for most people.

Also, is there any chance of changing some of your components? Here are my suggestions:

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147096 (16GB is WAY too much for the majority of people; this can easily be overclocked to 2400MHz.)
SSD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147188
Keyboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823114029 (Mechanical. Membrane keyboards like the Lycosa are complete garbage, and this thing is better IMO than the more expensive Blackwidow/Blackwidow Ultimate.)
CPU Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608024
or
http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=79583&vpn=H220&manufacture=Swiftech (Ignore the AIO uncustomizable loops.)
Skip purchasing an optical drive, if possible, or reuse your previous one. You also need an operating system. Best of luck with your rig.

SEASONIC all the way! When buying, I try to cut out the middleman, in other words a lot of products are made for other companies! And far as I know SEASONIC make their own.

You missed the point of my quoting myself =))
Provide us with a few links from some shops there, so we can see what's on offer and at what prices.... so we can, in turn, offer you the best suggestions.

Not that much on offer, but at least the prices aren't bad.

So, swap the VGA with a 7970, swap the SSD with a Crucial M4 or an OCZ Vertex 4, swap the H80i with a Noctual NH-D14, avoid tall heat sink RAM (preferably 8GB sticks, can't tell from your post if those are 4GB or 8GB sticks), and get a Seasonic X 660. Also, why would anyone buy anything from Razer?... don't.

Personally, I'd get a X79 GENE board, and an Asus Matrix 7970.
