PSU recommendations?

Here's my proposed build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/rKB84C

Current one listed is a 650W Gold+ rating (and a bit of a place holder.) Wattage seem adequate? Or need to go bigger? I plan on adding more RAM later on if I have an issue with video editing and CAD and maybe another hard drive for backing up files.

I would get a 650 G2

Assuming you mean this one? I'll look into it. Like I said, it was a place holder.

550W would also be enough. EVGA SuperNOVA G2 550W https://pcpartpicker.com/product/qYTrxr/evga-power-supply-220g20550y1 or Corsair RMx 550W https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3zNypg/corsair-power-supply-cp9020090na

But if you want more wattage there seems to be a promo at newegg for Corsair RMx 750W https://pcpartpicker.com/product/9q38TW/corsair-power-supply-cp9020092na or for 5$ more (still cheaper the 650 g2) Corsair RM850x https://pcpartpicker.com/product/7Dx9TW/corsair-power-supply-cp9020093na

The Photon is meh/average, I would get a Corsair CXM instead of it provided ~$40 to $60 is your budget. If you can go higher I would go for a Corsair RMx or a Evga G2.
