What wattage psu do i need with i7 2600k


I'm building my first computer and so far have bought the following:

i7 2600k
Asus P8Z68-V motherboard.

I'm going to get 8gb of RAM, a 1TB HDD, a DVD-RW drive, a TV card and a wireless card. I'm planning on using the onboard gpu in the processor rather than buying a separate gpu, and also hoping that the stock cooler will suffice. What I need to know is what wattage psu to buy? Can anyone give me some advice please.

  1. Thanks 384-BiT. Will this be OK even if I overclock the processor a bit?
  2. The PSU 384-BiT recommended should be fine, but make sure you keep an eye on the temps. when you start overclocking with that stock cooler. Not saying it won't work for a mild overclock, just keep and eye on the temps.
