I'm building a PC in a month or so and was wonder if a 750w PSU will do as I could save 100 dollars of my current PSU of choice
Sliverstone RL04B Case
Thermaltake TR2 TR-800P 800w PSU (Modular)
Crucial 4gb 1600MHz RAM (I'm get another stick a month after or so)
Gigabyte Radeon hd7970 GHz Edtion
ASRock B85M Pro 4
Intel Core i5 4670k 3.4GHz

More about : 750w psu

Unless you intend to go Crossfire at a later date, 550watt would be sufficient.

The wattages listed above are correct. However if you don't already own it do not buy a Thermaltake TR2. Absolute trash. Check here. I'll give you a hint. Start looking in tier 5.

Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, PC Power and Cooling, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ or Antec for quality.

You are buying a 'K' model CPU. You will need a Z87 chipset motherboard to overclock it.
