I got around 400W - 450W on somewhat maximum load, with a power supply calculator. Note that this was calculated without adding in any fans, any devices using usb ports, any aftermarket cooling, or any overclocked components. This is just a rough estimate of how much power your computer will need. I would suggest looking at different power supply calculators and try them out to see what you get.

Here's the calculator I used: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.js...
You can find many different calculators online by searching "power supply calculator"

600w to 650w is a good range for your current specs.

Keep in mind that if you plan on upgrading your computer later on, you'll need to buy a higher wattage power supply.

Please not that you picked a 3770 not the 3770K. your board supports overclocking and your CPu doesn't. upgrade to a 3770k if you want to overclock

As long as the PSU has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 34 Amps or greater and has at least one 6-pin and one 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors then it should be able to do the job.
