What Power Supply Should I get?

I was thinking of building a new pc, and was wondering as to what power supply wattage I could get away with. Here are the specs:

- Intel Core i5-4570 CPU
- MSI H87-G43 MB
- EVGA GTX 760(SC) ACX Cooling SLI
- Corsair Vengence 1600mhz 8GB
- LG GH24NSB0 Drive
- Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB Hard Drive
- NZXT Source 210 Black Case

  1. A good 500w unit. I suggest the Seasonic G series 550w model. 80 Plus Gold certified and modular for a very good price.

    Nope. sorry, missed that you wanted SLI!
    You'll want closer to 700W for that type of setup. Let's see what I can find...

    Corsair HX750W $85.99 after promo code and mail in rebate. Gold rated. Semi-modular.

    Awesome. Thanks!
    So in the future, its better to get over 700 watts if doing sli or crossfire?

    It really depends on the GPU. I use this site as a rough guideline: http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm
