I am looking at getting:

-Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
-MSI Z87-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
-Asus GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card


What would be the best recommended PSU given the Haswell Processor? And any other suggestions on my build?

Seems I completely neglected to add the rest of the components :p .

I already have:
-1 TB Seagate HDD
-12 GB RAM (I forget the brand off the top of my head, but it was a great deal)
-CPU Cooler is Hyper 212+
-Case s NZXT Phantom White

Hi - the Antec hcg620 is a good PSU, but it is not as yet Haswell certified,
while the XFX pro 650 is Haswell certified, so I'd lean towards that one
of the two suggested.

I googled it and this website says the Antec HCG 620 is certified.

I did read a month back that Corsair and Seasonic were Haswell certified, but I thought others were too now.

Here's so more on certified:

I wouldn't be worried about it, but it is a good point. You do want Certified. However, I trust Antec and I'm sure they will release certified publicly any day now.

There is also a workaround for non-certified PSUs. You can simply connect a fan directly to the power supply through a molex which will put enough load for the PSU to refrain it from shutting down if the cpu is in c6/c7 state.

I used realhardtechx as they update daily, and as of yest the hcg 620 wasn't Haswell
certified. Neither was it on Neweggs site.
