BTW, I may not go with 2 monitors and all 3 PCIe Intel 750 to begin with, but plan to add in future based on need basis.

Tx for that.

Looks like what you've suggested is gr8 for gaming and new model.

I was unsure about which one to go with, 550W / 700W / 750W / 850W. I need a quality product with min 5+ yrs warranty as well (what you've suggested takes care of both).

As this is the 1st DIY build of mine, based on no. of reviews/ratings here i wasn't sure about which one to choose. Thinking of going with one of the Top from this list - http://pcpartpicker.com/parts/power-supply/#m=14,94&sort=d7&page=1

Here are my considerations, but, if you could suggest what's the right W i need for the build I've provided it'll be helpful.

Both of the power supplies are extremely good quality with a 10 year warranty, but they are kinda overkill. If in the future you plan on doing SLI, go with the 750w one.

I'm not a PRO gamer, though I'm not sure I'll go with SLI, but, I'll be having a 4K player/writer, watch a lot of 4K movies from this in future. So, is it prudent to go with 750 or you feel 550 is enough.

If you aren't going to SLI, then stick with the 550w. If you do heavy overclocking, you could go with the 650w model if you want to have a lot of headroom.

Exactly that's where in fact I've a doubt and even not able to decide on Asrock/Asus MB's.

Is there any disadvantage in going with 750W G2 directly instead of 550/650.

Ratings are the only reason I was kind of thinking of going with 750W.
