These are the specs that I am currently considering on getting:
CPU- Intel Core i7 4670K (Extreme Overclock)

Motherboard- GIGABYTE Z87-HD3 ATX w/ Ultra Durable 4 Plus

Video Card- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Ti 2GB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card

Memory/RAM- 16GB (8GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory

Hard Drive- 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Drive)

The current watt setting is at 500. Is that enough? And is that a good gaming computer, in your opinion? Thanks for reading. :)

well, for that build 450watt should be enough, but i would get a XFX 550 watt for only $50, and that will be plenty.

I overclocked it by 20%. Does that change the amount of watts I need?

eh, not really, you should be just fine with 550watts, but 450 is kinda pushing it with OC'ing :)

I don't want to risk damaging my hardware with OC'ing, so I'm leaving that option out. With just an i7-4760, or i7-4670K, is 500 watts still okay, or 450? Sorry for asking so much, lol.
