  2. something in the 550W-650W range.

    overclocked that i5 will suck up 180W max... overclocked that 760 will suck up 200W max combined with system power draw of say 75W, and you have 455W max system power draw, generally you want your system to hover around 75% of your psus's rated power during normal use (which is where your PSU is most efficient); which would probably be closer to 400W, which means a 550W to 650W psu is ideal for your system
  3. Thanks a lot guys

    oops. you're right. 750W-850W would be in the sweet spot then.
