What power supply (Watts) do I need for my PC?

I am going to build my own pc (for the first time, woohoo!) and I am quite unsure which power supply I use (in watts).

My components are going to be :

Water cooler : Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H60 v2

Video card : XFX Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5

Motherboard : ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX/GEN3

ASUS DVD Writer, DRW-24B5ST

Storage (mechanical) : Seagate Barracuda® 1TB

SSD : Corsair SSD Nova Series 2, 30GB (for OS(Windows 7)

    Thank you for the quick answer. So 620 is what I need - Do you think buying a 750W is a good idea in case I am going to upgrade in the future?
  3. If you plan on throwing in another video card and using crossfire and overclocking, then a 750w wouldn't be a bad idea. If you just want to overclock, the 620 will work just fine. I'm showing that you are running about 440w total draw as is, but if you add another vid. card, you push it to 639w.
