Power Consumption for...

What would the PSU need to be for a GTX 670 and AMD FX-8350 @ 4.00 ghz. Nothing would be overlocked by the way.

Also, would the GIGABYTE GA-78LMT be a good mobo for this setup?

A decent 500W PSU should be sufficient. Wait for Shub to post recommendations though.

a 600watt psu should be enough. Personally I like the asus saber tooth boards but they are more pricey I think

Alright, so I was hoping to get out with a 500 Corsair, is that a good brand? I was looking at ecollegepc.

Corsair is fine.
500W is fine (even a good 430W would be fine)
eCollegePC is fine (if you don't want to build your own PC)

Any good quality 430w and up PSU is going to have the amps needed on the 12v. It's not really an issue.

well yeah, if you know what good quality actually means. Many people don't, and there are heaps of PSUs out there that claim to be good quality, but are absolute rubbish.

If you don't know what a good quality PSU is, you should look at reviews for the particular PSU's you are considering or come to a place like this and ask a person like Shub.

You don't really need to concern yourself with amps, as that, as well, is not a sole indicator of the quality of a PSU.

Just find out the estimated power consumption for your build, identify a PSU that safely meets and exceeds that power consumption that is of good quality using reviews, recommendations, and budget, among other things, and purchase and enjoy.

Edit: Even the budget priced good quality PSU's like the $40 Corsair CX430 will work fine for that build.
