Hey guys. I'm sorta new here, but I need some advice on the PSU I want to get.
I'm planning on getting the Corsair CX750 series, 80+ Bronze. I would totally get a Gold standard, but my budget does not allow for it :( 

Anyways my specs for my build are as follows:

-Intel Haswell i5 4670K at 3.4 Ghz(will be overclocked to 4 Ghz
-EVGA GTX 760 4GB standard edition
-Corsair Vengeance 16GB(4x4) pc3-1500 at 1600Mhz
-Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD
-Seagate Barracuda 750GB HDD 7200RPM
-WD Caviar 160GB HDD 7200RPM
-AsRock Z87 Extreme4 Motherboard
-4x Corsair Cooler Series 120mm fans
-Cold Cathode Light Kit at 12V
-Corsair 300R Case with 2 fans built in

Would a 750W Bronze PSU be enough for this setup? I've tried the PSU calculator but it remains at 34W for some reason .-.
Thanks for the help guise.

A 750w PSU is more then enough, you could even say its over kill for that kind of build.
If you don't plan on going SLI in the future you could drop down to a 650w or even a decent 600w PSU.

I'm actually gonna be going SLI later, now that Gigabyte launched their 4GB edition of the GTX 760. Thanks a bunch! :D
