I'll be using an i5-4670k and an R9 270X and I was going to get the XFX 650W but I want to crossfire in the future and I don't think 650W is enough. The rest of my components:

CPU: 4670k
GPU: Asus 7870
Cooler: 212 EVO
HDD: Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM
Case: Z11 Plus
Optical drive: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
Motherboard: Z87-G45

It can't be over £70

Perhaps a Seasonic G-750? You should be OK as long as you aren't overclocking a lot. I would recommend waiting until you are going to crossfire and upgrade to a 850+ PSU at the same time. Then again, I'm not sure how much power consumption the 270X draws.

You might actually be able to get away with 650W with two 270x. However a 750W PSU will give you a little more headroom for overclocking and stuff.
