I'd be looking for a single rail 600w unit.
Bigger won't hurt.

Looks good and agree 600-750W PSU for a gaming

PC is a good range esp if there's a possibility you'll add a second GPU.

Also ....with a gaming PC....good to use a better, more efficient HS Fan. You can check out the options at Frostytech.com. Xigmatek has some good products .... they work well and aren't bank/budget busters.

Good Luck.
