500 would be enough for stock clocks and even a moderate overclock, provided you get a good unit of course. 600 would be my recommendation unless you really want to push your parts to the max but if that were the case I've got a feeling you'd already know what PSU you wanted.

For a regular 780 and a mid-range board like that, 500w would be fine.
Have you considered going with a 780 Lightning, though? Not much more, and will perform markedly superior to a stock 780 PCB. For that, I would recommend 550-600w.
Even people have toenails. Of course PCs have toenails. -claytonbuckley

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.

Best two pieces of advice in the whole thread.

A somewhat less important consideration is also that having your PSU operating below max load will help your PCs overall temps, I say go for a good 600W PSU from a reputable manufacturer.

Could I use a dell power supply? 850 watts. I'm not sure if this power supply would be compatible.
Model number is N875E-00
