Ideal power supply for this rig?

All the parts without prices are things I've already bought. Mainly I just want some opinions on a good PSU for this build. It will be for rendering in blender, so if the GPU/CPU seems unbalanced it's just because the GPU's will be for rendering. Also gaming too. Anyway, I'd like to stay under $80 if possible. If not, just suggest what you think and I'd be happy to hear! http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qyQB7P

Get a evga g2 750 watts.

Thanks for the suggestion. I was leaning toward that already so it's good to have some other opinions!

I would second that G2 unit. Whatever you decide make sure that you have the cables to drive it. 2 970's take a pair of 8 pins each. Even some bronze 750W units don't have that. The Gold G2 does.

Ah, I didn't know that not many PSU's had that! Thanks for telling me man.
