If you are going to stick with a single card, a 550-600W will do fine.

If you are thinking of SLI in the future then go 700-750W

If that PCP&C PSU is too high for your budget, the Corsair 750TX series are not quite as reliable but good.

A few suggestions on your build:

Go with 8GB RAM, it is plenty for gaming.
That case is super expensive, unless you really like it.
Motherboard is overkill.
7970 is a better performer over the 670.
