Should I take a 530W or a 750W Powersupply?

Hey there, I selected all the parts for my Gaming Pc, its gonna be a high-end pc (intel core i7, radeon r9 390 etc) and I was very surprised when I saw that its only about 510 Watts. Before I discovered this website I customised gaming Pc's on diffrent sites and the amount of watts was always between 600W and 800W. Why does this one only have 510W? Should I take a 530W Powersupply or should I take a 750W Powersupply? I want to make sure that I do the right decision...

There really isn't a power supply calculator that is 100% accurate.

Well it would depend on the quality of the power supply. You could run it off of a high quality 550w power supply. For me I would be more comfortable running it off of a 600w. If you plan on doing an xfire config later on, I would go with a 650w-750w. Do you have any specific power supplies you were looking at?

Yes: EVGA SuperNOVA G2 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply I've choosen an I7 6700k processor, R9 390 graphics, a very good liquid cooler etc. I want to use it for gaming (The Witcher 3, AC Syndicate etc) and I plan to overclock that pc... so what do you think? should I coose a 600W power supply?
