This is the PC I am going to build so I would Like opinions and there are 1 or 2 items I miss that I would like a reccomendation.

My PC build
CPU – Intel Core I5 3570K 3.4Ghz Quad Core Ivybridge CPU Processor - BX80637I53570K - Socket 1155 OC @ 4.4Ghz
CPU Cooler – Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 High Performance CPU Cooler
Mobo – Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Intel Z77 DDR3 ATX HDMI Motherboard - Socket 1155
RAM – 8GB Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 1600MHz RAM Memory
All come in a bundle –costs £339.95

GPU – EVGA 012-P3-1573-KR Nvidia GTX570 HD SuperClocked 1280MB 320-Bit DDR5 Graphics Card
This costs - £253.45

HDD – Seagate ST31000524AS 3.5 inch Barracuda 1TB GB
This Costs - £61.50

DvD – LG GH24NS90
This costs - £13.47

Sound Card – Asus Xonar DG 5.1 PCI Sound Card
This costs - £24.99

NIC – USB Dongle One
Case – Corsair Carbide Series 400R Mid-Tower Gaming Case
This costs – £77.81

So I would Like someone to reccomend A good PSU that will be High enough for this Bearing in mind the OC PSU at 4.4Ghz.
The SSD is an optional extra I may add, I would like a cheapish one with about 120Gb or slightly more, Just for a game or two and the OS.

Any feedback welcome. This total is £771.17, I would like it to be as cheap as possilbe adding the rest but I know that you can't comprimise on the PSU or that could fry the chips.

Thanks for all the help in advance

P.S I do not wish to SLI
