I am building a new gaming pc, with a Gigabyte 7870 Windforce factory OC, with an i5-3570k. What is the recommended PSU you think I should go for? I won't crossfire but I may OC in time... :)

Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

Radeon HD 7870 - On your average system the cards require you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit as minimum and 700 Watt if you go with two cards in Crossfire mode

If you are going to overclock the GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina.Source: I recommend one of these :
