About 100w for the 4770k.
Corsair 500r ~ P8Z68-V Pro ~ i5 2500k ~ Hyper 212+ ~ Corsair 2x4gb ~ TX750w v2 ~ MSI 780 TF ~ F3 1TB ~ Crucial M4 128GB ~ Xonar DG ~ Tt Meka G1 ~ Asus PA248Q

Why would they sell something with hardware that is more powerful then PSU they have provided.

It's fine if the computer comes with it.
As you can see, the power consumption of a similar system never even comes close to 500W.

if the psu is a good class psu not a generic brand blah blah even 450W can rn that card lol even a 690 can run on a 450W if the psu is good
back in my day nvidia's 9800gt was the titan and 9800gx2 was the gt 690

Isn't 770 a 200w GPU?
Unless you're running one of those crazy FX9 CPUs, 500w is plenty.

They overstate the power requirements for multiple reasons.

1) Some less reputable PSUs might not output the stated wattages
2) Different setups will use different amounts of power. A system with a low power Pentium will use a lot less power than one with a 4960X
3) To cover their asses.

Don't forget to consider capacitor aging when calculating PSUs unless you swap them out every year.

Also don't forget to dust that badboy out every once in a while but be careful.

as parts age they start to require more power.

you will probably be ok with the 500w psu, but during long periods of graphics instense/heavy gaming the psu will be working hard..... just make sure to maintain good case airflow, specifically at the PSU's intake point... if it is sucking are from the bottom of the base make sure it's elevated off the ground so it can get all the fresh air it needs to stay cool

Just get an XFX 550 and be done. More than enough for that build.

too little or too much power with stress your components so get a quality PSU.
