Anything else factor into the watt amount?

For brands there's usually a lot of bias around these parts. A lot of people will tell you "omg dont buy rosewill psu" or "corsair psu is garbage" but usually it doesn't matter too much. However the better brands are usually Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, and Cooler Master. Some brands to stay away from are Raidmax, Cheaper Rosewills, Logisys, Diablotek, and anything cheap. Something I might note is that you really don't want to skimp on your power supply, because a bad power supply can actually be a fire hazard and destroy your computer (as well as maybe your house too.)

For your build you'll probably only need a 500w-600w depending on how many hard drives you have, etc.

EDIT: Forgot to mention you really want to look for a power supply that is 80+ Certified.
is haha

Depends on it's rating. For example, an 80+ platinum could run that at 450W easily. Depends on energy efficiency.

Buy something that can give you at least 1,21 gigawatts, so if there ends being something wrong with your build you can travel back in time. Easy fix.

780 TI required 600 watts with at least 42 amps. If you want a bit more then for 650-700 watt. If you want to SLI one day maybe you need a bit more but Im not sure.

That requires around 600W with just one GPU, and around 850W if you are planning for a second 780 in the future.

Recommended brands? I usually recommend Corsair or Seasonic, and Seasonic OEMs (such as Antec, XFX, and a few others).

It's inexpensive and gets the job done.
Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?
