I'm building a new PC. And the components that will use power are MSI Z77A-G45, i7 3770 ( non-S or K), Corsair Force GT 240GB SSD, and 16GB Ripjaws RAM (1.35v). Do you think a 750W PSU would be sufficient?

Thank you, thank you. This will be my 2nd ever build. 1st build was a while ago with a Pentium 4. o.o
And I can say this will be quite the step up from what Im using now, which is the Pentium build.

If you will not be using a discrete graphics card, a 300w psu will be more than enough.
A overly strong psu will loaf and be inefficient. I think a quality 500w unit would be strong enough to add a future graphics card as strong as a GTX670.

What will you be using this for primarily?

Gaming and video rendering. And I will add a GTX 670.

In that case your 750w psu would still be more than sufficient. A GTX670 needs a 500w psu and 2 6 pin connectors. That will be found on most 550-65-w psu's.

And... for a few bucks more, I would get the "K". It is easy to raise the multiplier on a 3770K from 35 to 43 or so. A nice boost in processing power. All you need is a $30 cooler like the cm hyper212.

Haha I do not need to overclock, but if you say so. And anyway, I hear Ivy Bridge runs hot, so if I overclock like you suggest, I am going for a Corsair H100, which was what I was gonna buy anyway.
