How many watts do I need?

Hello everyone I'm buying a new PSU cause my old one died and I want a PSU that will run all of my hardware but I don't wanna get a PSU that is overkill. Money is not an issue, I'm looking for the right PSU for my build.

Motherboard: MSI P67A-C43 B3
CPU: Intel Core i5 2500k
GPU: AMD HD 7770 x1
RAM: 8gb DDR3 1600 (2gb x4)
HDD: 1tb Seagate HDD 7200RPM x1
Optical Dive: Combo DVD/CD-RW x1
Cooling: Corsair H60 CPU Cooler
Fans: 120mm x4
USB Devices: x5

any information is much appreciated

  3. A 400W+ PSU from XFX, Antec, Seasonic, or Corsair (AX, TX, and HX units only) should do.
    Here's a good example if you live in the US: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb9

    500-550w will do great in case you want to overclock which you should
  5. You'd honestly be fine with a 500W power supply, but that would not allow for any upgrades, if you want to have the option to do future upgrades a 600W would suffice until you decide to get a very high end GPU and CPU combo.
