Why would you not go with an Intel processor?

You don't need 700 watts for a 7850 by itself with no plans of adding another one. 550 watts is good.

I just don't like intel processors and prefer AMD, I don't really want to argue about it i'm more interested in the PSU thing, because if i were to add another GPU and run in crossfire in the future what Wattage would i need?
