What PSU do i need

Hey, i am looking for a new PSU after the old one blew my house breakers,
This is my build

MSI Mpower MoBo
GTX 660 SC, ( will go for SLI ASAP )
Intel i5 3570k (will OC)
1TB HDD
128 samsung 830 SDD
Crucial Ballistix 4x2

And i will get my custom WC loop soon,

Any help will be greatly appreciated, i would love to have solid answers, also it would be a huge + if the PSU was Modular, but not a must

My Budget is about 120 bucks,

Cheers,
-Simon

    Hi - you can probably SLI with a quality 650w unit, but the usual recommendation on this forum for CF/SLI is a
    quality 750w unit. I recommend regardless of which brand you choose, that you skip their
    budget/opening price point lines & go a little higher. The quality suppliers are Seasonic, Corsair AX, HX, & TX v2 series,
    most Antec's, PC Pwr & Cooling, XFX, Enermax. There are other's, but you'll be able to find a good unit from this list.

    Some for you to consider:

  2. Well without knowing what sort of WC loop you are going to run it leaves room for error.
    On a normal setup 700w is enough for xfire/sli with a good tier PSU.
