Well the recommended power is 600w + minimum but idk. I always feel safe going with ATLEAST the minimum and a bit over if possible. (I just purchased a GTX 770 and 750w) but really I could have gotten away with 600-650w

More than enough, plus its a quality unit. You could run a GTX 780 ti with that power supply if you don't increase the voltage on the card.

Nvidia may suggest a 600W minimum, but they have to take into account that not everyone has a high end PSU, some PSU are junk, and can't supply the rated wattage, thats why they recommend a minimum 600W. With a quality unit like seasonic its no problem.

The minimum is a 550W, but since that's a good quality one, it should be fine

The 750w Corsair RM is the first unit from Corsair to ever completely fail in testing. Corsair is using Chicony Power Technology as an OEM and the results are not spectacular. The RM series is also only rated at 40c. You could have done better for the same or less money.

Hell even the EggXpert tier list has them in tier 3 with the CX series.

I would feel better with the 650w version of the G series myself. 575w is what's recommended with a GTX 770 and the 550w model is probably fine but I would rather be safe than sorry
