I need to get an efficient power supply , and my limited experience is getting in my way.
This is my current setup :

I might go for another gtx 780, but i dont know. I dont want too much power for my pc, but not enough power would be even worse.

A solid 650w unit from XFX, Seasonic, EVGA, Corsair or Antec will cover a single 780. If you think you will go SLI or perhaps upgrade the gpu at some later date, look for something in the area of 850-1000w from the same companies.

Thank you! I was told to go for EVGA Supernova 1000G2, but i think thats just too much, so i will just go for 850 power supply.

I think my final choice will be a XFX 850W ATX12V / EPS12V power supply. You think this will be good enough ?

800w is the recommended size for SLI 780's. XFX is a great psu and well respected. The 850 should give you what you need for the future.
