Hi, im building my first computer and im having trouble finding the right psu wattage from calculators, what im using is:

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD FX-8320 125w 8 core 3.5ghz(4.0ghz turbo)

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2765-KR GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support

And 4 to 5 solid state drives, might get a wireless adapter too..could someone suggest the right amount of wattage? I think its about 850w but im not sure

Power consumption for solid state drives are pretty low, even at full load (about 3-5 watts). 550- 600w PSU will be enough for your system.
