Need Help on finding right PSU

Hello,
I'm building my first gaming rig, and would like advice on what brand/wattage PSU I need. I'm looking for a modular/semi-modular/ non-modular brand name PSU for my needs. My budget for the PSU is $100. Here are my specs;

CPU- Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz LGA

Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H LGA 1155 Z77 ATX Intel Motherboard

GPU- GIGABYTE GV-N66TOC-2GD GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM

1TB SeaGate Barracuda HDD

64 GB Samsung SSD

Drive; Lite-On LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive IHAS424-98

And a few 200MM and 120MM Fans.

Maybe a cold cathode lighting system later.

This machine is mainly going to be used to HD video editing/rendering, and gaming.
Any comments or suggestions concerning the parts will be appreciated.

    You could try posting in new-build, just follow the layout.

    They will also look over your components and help you get the best build for your money.

    I would personally say the 620 is a little low. It will be fine if that is a quality PSU, again the people in NewBuild's will help with that.
