So, here's that build I'm getting.
(I just posted the wrong link, how embarrassing)

And I'm still confused on whether to just settle for a 850w PSU or a 1000w PSU.

What do I really need?

Depends on the rest of the rig and your video card(s).

If the cash is there, I always recommend going bigger with the psu, but 850 might do ya fine depending on the rest of your setup. I'm running a 780ti overclocked and an FX 8120 overclocked pretty high and I'm only running a 750 psu
