Hey guys I need to no how many watts I need for my first pc build, its Black Friday and there's sale at ncix Canada for a corsair tx750 750w for 49.99$
Or corsair tx 850w v2 139.95 from computer avenue

I haven't purchased any RAM yet but my specs are:
Cpu: Intel i7 4770k
Motherboard: ASRock Z87 Extreme4
Gpu: XFX Radeon HD 7970DoubleD
Ssd: crucial m500 240GB
Hard drive: Seagate barracuda 3TB
Case: coolmaster haf 922
RAM: will likely be G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 or the 16GB version

I do not plan on overclocking right away but would like to have enough wattage to do so in the future. And I may buy an aftermarket cpu cooler.
Thanks for any speedy answers as today is Black Friday and I'd like to no asap

750w is more than enough including overclocking.
