I want to know what I should get for a power supply based on the hardware I'm ordering and just a general opinion on what I'm getting.

Specs:

CPU = Intel Core i7-3770K

Motherboard = ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM = G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX

Graphics Card = EVGA 02G-P4-2680-KR GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Hard drive(s) = Samsung Electronics 840 Pro Series 2.5-Inch 256 GB SATA 6GB/s Solid State Drive MZ-7PD256BW

=Western Digital WD Black WD2002FAEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - OEM

optical drive x1

I haven't quite narrowed down a case yet put assume it's large and fitted with fans + liquid cooling. Also I may or may not add another SSD + Graphics card down the road, so keep that in mind aswell.

Feel free to let me know if anything's wrong here, I'm not exactly an expert at this kind of stuff. And finally, thanks a bunch for any help :)  :)

My general opinion is it would be a good idea to wait a couple weeks for Haswell CPUs and perhaps the GTX 770 that should be arriving soon (it's a GTX 680 with updated firmware and possibly a lower price).

As for a PSU... a good 500-550W unit would be fine if you're going to only use the one graphics card. If you want to keep the option of using two graphics cards in SLI/Crossfire, a 750W PSU would be suitable.
