building new pc, don't know the psu wattage I need.
I have no idea how to find out how much wattage I need. One calculator I tried said @normal 444w, and another said 644w. My build is by budget, mostly thinking about the gpu. In my country this costs about $1.420 I don't think I will oc my hardware, because I've never done it before. At most little gpu tweak when it's getting old, but I doubt it. I will go for stock cpu cooling to begin with at least. (always been with stock, it works)

You will need about a 600w psu. Here is a chart that will give you a good recommendation for a psu. Whatever you do, pick only a quality unit like Seasonic, antec, xfx
Yea your motherboard supports up to 220 watt cpu. In case u need it. (Future proofing) guess 250 watts to be safe. The graphics card needs up to 600 watts. So I would do an 850 /900watt psu or more. It's always better to have more than to have not enough.
