What PSU should I choose?

CPU: Intel Core i7-4770k
GPU: GTX 780ti (not sure which version yet)
DDR3 memory: Crucial DDR3 Ballistix Sport VLP 8gb (2x4)
Motherboard: MSI Z87-G43 GAMING, Socket-1150 (still a bit unsure)
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda® 2TB
Case: CM Storm II advanced gaming case
Monitor: Philips 24" LED 242G5DJEB/00 (https://www.komplett.no/philips-24-led-242g5djeb00/783775)

My intensions are high-end gaming like crysis 3, ac black flag and battlefield 4 on ultra.
I've heard 750W is enough but i'm not exactly sure. Which PSU should I choose and how much Watt do I need for this? Also i'm not entirely sure if this will be my exact build as i'm still kind of researching but this is what i've come up with so far so if you have any comments regarding the other components that'd be very appreciated :)

Solution will be picked !!

More about psu choose
  1. you need 450W minimum , so i always add a 200W more to be safe..
    that mean with a 650W psu you will be good

    750w should be fine depending on if you plan to SLI in the future and how much you plan to overclock.

    Get a good brand, Seasonic is one of my favorites lately. Corsair makes good PSUs as well.

    Thank you and thanks to @badboyrog2 as well, was kinda hard picking the solution haha. What about any of these? Corsair RM750, 750W PSU, XFX ProSeries Black Edition 750W PSU (although that costs a bit more) or Cooler Master V750S, 750W PSU? There was nothing from seasonic on the site i'm ordering from tho.
  4. A good 650w can also run it.

    A GeForce GTX 780ti needs at least 42 the 12v rail amps on and a 600 watt power supply.
