What size power supply would work best for this rig?

At the writing of this post I am doing research on possibly build my first gaming pc as the computer I am using seems to be unable to handle the mods I am using on Skyrim as well as unable to play other games at all. Well now that I think about it I have more than just the question I asked, however the first is as the tittle asks what power supply should I look for a rig with these specs.

Cougar Solution Black Steel Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - 1x120mm Cougar Turbine Hyper-Spin Bearing Fan, USB 3.0 port

Kingston HyperX Fury White 8GB Desktop Memory Module

AMD FX-8300 3.3GHz EIGHT-CORE CPU

MSI 970A-G46 ATX Motherboard

Thermaltake CL-P0503 CPU Cooler - 70mm Fan, Rifle Bearing

Sabrent 802.11n Wireless PCI Controller Card - 802.11n/g/b, 300Mbps, 40/64/128-bit WEP encryption

Asus GeForce® GTX 750 TI Graphics Card - OC Edition, 2 GB GDDR5, PCI Express 3.0 x16, 2 x DVI, D-Sub, HDMI - GTX750TI-OC-2GD5

I also going to use piece that I already have like a 500gb western digital hard drive and a dvd player and burner unit.

I also have some ram that I want to use but can't remember how much it is at the moment. In addition I might down grade the cpu and motherboard to save cash if I can, but as it stands what psu would work for this rig.

And on a separate topic if anyone reading this has any other advice about this rig and what I should do as this is my first from the ground build it would be appreciated.

Thank You to all that give me a response.

Is this a specific psu thread for whats needed to power up the rig or is this an entire build advice thread? Because if its the former then this thread is in the wrong area..

PSU wise the best advice we can give you is you really need to get the best you can. Think of the psu as a heart.. if the heart dies, what dies with it? Everything. So quality is important here.

The most power hungry hardware in the list is the FX8300. The 750ti will hardly draw anything. You could get away with a quality 500 watt unit tbh. Or if you want more if you feel that's not enough then a 600 watt will do. Recommended brands are Seasonic, Corsair, and SuperFlower. Gold rated or higher is what i would aim for.
