Well without considering any sort of graphics card that you'll be buying, I'd say something in the 400 watt range would be good for that build, perhaps something beefier if you choose to get a high end graphics card.

I would get at least a 600watt psu or higher.Corsair has the 750 and 850TX's .The 850TX goes for like $129 or lower.I would suggest either the 650/750 or 850 so you can upgrade later on.I can vouch for the 850TX its a great psu and stable as hell




ASRock Z97 Extreme 4 / i7 4790K / Corsair H80i / 4x4GB Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer DDR3 1600 / 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black / 240GB Mushkin Chronos Deluxe SSD / 2x Evga GTX 670 FTW 2GB in SLI / Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty / Corsair HX1000w

yeah it should fit just fine, may be a bit tight but nothing too bad.
