I will most likely over clock my CPU in the future when I get some better fans therefore it must be enough for then. I may also want to upgrade a few components in the future.

CPU: i5 3570k
GPU: gigabyte gtx 660 2gb
Motherboard: Asrock z77 pro4-m
Case: thermaltake a31
Ram: g.skill sniper 8gb DDR3 1866mhz
HDD: WD Black caviar 1 tb
Optical drive: Will get one in the future

Thanks in advance.

XFX has good PSUs, however, you could go as low as 500W in that build with a quality PSU. Such as Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, Antec.

This is only 29.99$ and it is from one of the best PSU makers ever, I have one and it is powering my build just fin, has a good bit of amps on the 12V rail, so it can power all your high GPUS even comes with 2 connectors, for 29.99 after all the codes and rebates this is a steal right here, I got mine for 40$, so buy this now and you will be fine.:)

Ok thank you so much. But your saying 550w should be fine even if I decide to overclock and possibly upgrade components in the future?

Yep, I have a 500W PSU, same CPU, more powerful GPU, both overclocked, and I am doing fine.
