How Much Power Does My Build Need?

I'm not sure how much wattage my new build will require. PCPartPicker's estimated power consumption was 477 watts, but I'm not sure how accurate that really is. Based on this calculation, I'm loosely planning on purchasing a Corsair 860W Modular Power Supply, just so I have plenty of room for overclocking or future additions to my build. If anyone can help my find out how much power my system will need, that would help me out tremendously.

Here's my build:

    750w can suffice your build. But if you are getting 860w then you still have room for upgrade which is a plus.
  2. All those parts combines consumes about 500watts, Linustechtips(youtube) created a video build guide awhile back and he uses a 550w PSU having a GTx Titan(or 780) and the system consume ~443watts awhile Overclocked
