Hello guys!

This my first build and I really don't know a thing about PSU.

- Z87-G45 Motherboard
- Fractal Design Define R4 Case
- Intel core i5-4670K 3.4GHz GPU
- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2gb Video Card
- G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8gb DDR3 1600
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Fan
- Samsung 840 Series 120gb SSD
- Seagate Barracuda 1tb 7200 HHD

Note that I may overclock it in the future.
So, what PSU would you recommend for this? I would like it to be under 200$


Thanks for the help!! :wahoo:

The bare minimum is around 430 watts.
I would buy something a little more to avoid risk-taking and also for allowable future upgrades. Something more than 550 watts should suit your needs. I also only got modular psu, since this will be less of a mess and improve airflow.
