I'm in Australia, hence why everything is so overpriced. I'm hoping to keep my budget around where it is, but I can go a little higher if need be.
Thanks in advance.

same here in Malaysia,overpriced parts are common. you can go for higher psu for some headroom in case of overclocking or SLI in the future. otherwise you're good to go imo

Yeah, I hadn't really thought about that. What wattage PSU would you suggest?

imissed the mobo .apologoze .
you have overall watts at 453W . Look at what A supports the psu on +12V rail . RM-650 has 54A on this rail , so 54Ax12V=648W . it is much more than your rig needs . Any psu with 40A on +12V rail will suffice .So at least .550W without sli,crossfire ,overclocking . GTX 770 need one 8 pin and one 6 pin power connectors .Make sure . the psu has them . NVIDIA recommends 600W psu , but since you have Haswell processor , it may be less . But it is a good idea 600W psu .without SLI and at least 750-800W with sli .

I think I'll leave my case with the option to SLI in the future. Looking at this (http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm) site, it recommends an 850W PSU for GTX 770 SLI, do you think 850 is necessary?

750-800W should be sufficient for two of your current card and the cpu. the recommendation is for the safe side of the build. well it's always good to have more rather than insufficient wattage with a psu,so if you can afford 850W then i'd say go for it.

Yeah, I think I'll go with The RM-850, even if it is $75 more.
