Hi I'm in the process of chosing components for my new gaming rig, however I'm not totally aware of whether it will all work together, e.g found out I needed a new mobo to fit the i5. now I'm a little worried whether the psu I've chosen will be able to have enough cables and watts to power it all.

gigabyte 770 2gb
MSI Z87M-G43
Corsair CX750M
Crucial ballistic tactical 2 x 4 GB
i5 I5-4670K
Antec New Solution VSK-4000E
+ standard 1tb HDD and Dvd drive from my old rig.

the GTX770 requires a minimum of 575 watt PSU in a typical build, if you are planning on overclocking then you will want something larger. The 750W is a good choice unless you plan on sli in the future in which case you're looking at a minimum of an 850W (even larger if you plan on oc'ing).
