What PSU for my build?

What PSU voltage would I need for the following build:

Intel i5 3570k
Corsair vengeance 16 gb 1600 mhz 2 module kit
OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB
EK DCP 4.0 pump
EK Coolstream radiator XT
(extra volts for fans I might add after all the parts get here, as well as a blu ray reader)

Also I would like the possibility to upgrade with another graphics card(maybe) and another SSD (for sure), also upgrade my memory but I doubt that makes much of a difference.

    Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

    GeForce GTX 680 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit.
    GeForce GTX 680 SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 750 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

    If you are going to overclock the GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina.Source: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_680_sli_review,4.html
  2. If you use this psu calculator considering your components,plus extra volts for fans and three SSD a blu ray reader the result is 714W (overclocked processor & used 680x2 to simulate gpu OC:
  3. If you want to account for future SLI 750W would be quite adequate.

    Yep. On the other hand, that 850W PSU is cheaper than the 750W one.

    If you want something a little cheaper:
  5. That's a good value find.
  6. However it would be good to start a thread in the watercooling section to have them help figure your loop power draw and to make sure your set with everything you'll need.
