Hey all just wondering what PSU wattage would be best for my set up. Eventually I will be adding a SSD to the build but that will be months after the build. (BTW mostly gaming, web browsing for this build)

Thanks :D

A general rule is to add 100 to PCPP's estimate, so you'd be fine with a 500 for example
