600 watt minimum. Personally I'd go 700+.

See the top right, there should be roughly how much power you need. Please put the rest of the components first though (hard drive/ssd, optical drive, wifi, whatever you need). I suspect you will need 550-650W.

500W would be fine, but I'd go for at least 550W or 600W.

This is the choice of the week for single card systems. It will easily cover your needs.

Just for reference, according to Anandtech a system with an overclocked 3960X and a stock 780 needs about 405W during BF3 and FurMark. So I'd say any good 500+ watt supply would be fine.

I didn't know about the wattage on the top right either.

Just a good quality unit 500W or above will put you in a good place for most OC single cards.

Easier to just go by the GPU's recommended minimum for any build. Yes its higher then an absolute system minimum, theres a reason for that.

Get at least a 550W 80+ Bronze from a good company.
