    The 650 will work ok. But I would go a bit bigger like 750 or so. That way if in the future you add a card or something else ya have the extra power there.

    A good tool to use to evaluate your power needs is the site pcpartpicker (Pick Parts, Build Your PC, Compare and Share - PCPartPicker), just go down the list, select your hardware, and look at the "Estimated Wattage" field.

    It's a good tool to use, as things like RAM add a lot of current that you may not think about when building up your PC.

    I'd say unless you were planning on going SLI/Crossfire, 650 is plenty. However, there are a lot of factors when selecting a PSU, so read as many reviews as you can of your selected power supply, and try to determine if your average load sits in the optimal efficiency range of your selected PSU.

    I'm running a Seasonic 660XP2 for my machine and I think my configuration is roughly similar to yours power usage wise.

    As I recall, I had enough juice for another GTX 760 SC FTW card without even coming close to the PSU limits. **Edit, just looked at my parts list, and my estimated wattage is 395 Watts. Comfortably @ roughly 60% capacity. My 760 is roughly 170 Watts, I think the GTX 970 runs @ about 140, so you should be very comfortable with a 650W PSU.**

    You can get an EVGA SuperNova 750 G2 for the same price. It is a significantly better PSU in terms of build quality, performance and warranty, and has much nicer looking cables as an added bonus.

    The H100i is probably the worst cost/performance and noise/performance option on the market at the moment. You can make a huge upgrade by spending a little more on a Swiftech H220-X, or a smaller upgrade at a similar price going to a Cooler Master Nepton 240M.

    That SuperNova 750 is pretty sweet. I'm afraid I'm a SeaSonic fan, but the reviews of the SuperNova @ EVGA Supernova G2 750W Review & EVGA SuperNOVA G2 750 W Review | techPowerUp are pretty much glowing reports of the quality! I like the braided cables much better than the Flat things that came with the Seasonic as well.

    Excellent suggestion if you don't mind me sayin'.

    Thanks - I was a Seasonic oem only user for a long time. Testing and disassembling the 850 and 1200 G2, as well as the 1600 P2 changed that. Then there are the cables, and EVGA's customer support.

    The EVGA 750 G2 is a excellent recommendation and choice.
    I am using one in one of my systems and the PSU unit is solid even running SLI Configurations.

    Intel 4770k and SLI GTX 760s. Runs everything I throw at it including benchmarks.

    Saw the 850 on the Egg today for $89 after $35 MIR ($124.99 before rebate)

    EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2 220-G2-0850-XR 850W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Power Supply Intel 4th Gen CPU Compatible 10 Year Warranty - Newegg.com

    Think the 850 is a bit overkill, but for $89....of course you have to deal with the rebate.

    Just came to post that here. That deal is way too good to pass up.

    EVGA rebates are typically painless. Register online, mail in the UPC and form, and you get an AE gift card in about 4 weeks.
