How much watt power supply do I need

Hi guys, i'm buying a new gaming pc and this is what I want to buy.

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Hero
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Samsung MZ-7PD128BW, 128GB SSD

Storage: Seagate ST1000DM003 1 TB Hard Drive

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 770 2 GB
Case: Corsair Caribe 500R
Optical Driver: LG GH24NS70

I think that this is a pretty decent pure gaming pc, but the only thing I don't know is how much Watt I need for my power supply. Could you guys help me finding the right power supply for my pc?

  1. Best answer
    For a system using a single GeForce GTX 760 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 35 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most critical factor.
