Hi everyone I would like you guys opinion on my future new built, especially the suitable PSU which is not underpowered or overpowered. Some of site do provide the power calculation but I guess I trust more on some of you professional here.

Corei7 2600
ASUS P8Z68-V PRO / GENE 3
ASUS HD7950 3GB D5 384BIT OR ASUS EAH6870 1GB D5 256BIT DC
3 x 1TB HDD
2 X DVDRW
1866C9 DOMINATOR GT 4Gx2
HYPER 212 PLUS CPU Cooler


PSU? Which brand is better choice: Cooler Master, Corsair, Cougar? How many watt I need?

Thank you so much.

Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, XFX. Stay away from CM and Cougar. Well, maybe Cooler Master is OK.

^ - Yes go with abekl's recommendations!

If you are looking for a size, anywhere from 650 watts to 850 watts will work.

I suggest a modular 750 watts PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
This one will have some extra capacity for future add-ons as well as compensate for capacitor aging.

However, if you get good sale pricing, rebate, etc. consider Corsair's HX850; I have this one working well for over 2 years.

750 is a good size if you know you want to play around with overclocking and have plans for SLI/Crossfire in the future.

Otherwise something in the 550 to 650 range is fine if you want a singular beefy card. 400 to 500 is good for mid range video cards.

For 750:

Really good deal on a Bronze 80+ unit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Really good deal on a Gold 80+ unit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For 550 to 650:
