According to PC part picker my build is 339 watts. I am planning on using a Ryzen 5 1600 with a gtx 1070 and 3200mhz corsair vengeance lpx kit. I am planning to oc these 3 components. How many watts should I go for? 550W? 650? 750?

Thanks.

Don't use tier lists. They are a awful way to choose PSU's and often very wrong.

Had a look at your recommendations, and they seem to be top tier PSU's! The only one I can physically get my hands on seems to be the RMx series from corsair; the focus plus from seasonic only comes in the 850W variant at retailers where I am and no one is selling bitfenix psu's here.
