Motherboard: Asus Rampage IV Black Edition
Processor: Intel Extreme i7 4960X Hex Core Overclocked at 4.4 Ghz to 4.8 Ghz
Graphics Card: Quad Overclocked Nvidia titan black
RAM: 64 Gb Kingston HyperX 1866 Mhz (8x8Gb) DDR3 RAM
Storage: 7 Samsung 840 Evo SSD

Or should i choose 1300 Watts Power Supply?

Nope, the rest of the rig is is however :D 

Titan Black TDP = 250W

250Wx4=1000W

i7 4960X TDP = 130W

130W+1000W=1130W

1130W + OCing + watercooling (I assume you're doing that) + the rest of the system = probably over 1300W

Naw, for that I imagine you'd need 1500 watts. 300 watts for each titan plus 300 watts for everything else. A 1300 watt powersupply would only leave 100 watts for the rest of the system.
