A good 600W unit will be plenty (more than you need actually, but it allows room for extreme OC'ing, if you wish).

Thanks again for the reply DJ! Do you have any suggestions for the PSU?

Unless you intend to do nothing but run power viruses like OCCT all day the 520 watt psu that was reccomended in your last thread would be plenty, even with all kinds of overclocking

In the UK one of the best PSU deals is actually the XFX Core 550W for under 50 quid: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/550w-xfx-pro-series-core... With 44A on the 12V rail it is more than electrically sufficient for a system with a single GTX 670 and has enough PCIe power connectors.
