Hi guys this is the pc parts I am planning to buy http://pcpartpicker.com/p/W44b99

I'll use this pc for 3d modeling maya, zbrush, 3d rendering in mental ray, vray. And cinematic in unreal engine 4.

I'm wondering what psu wattage suit best for this pc... I am planning to buy good xfx gold psu, but I've no idea what's the right wattage to choose...

A good 500-550w could easily power your system. If you are overclocking you could go with a 550-600w psu.

with that card a good 550 watts psu would be fine. XFX is a good psu made by seasonic, seasonic, super flower, EVGA B2, EVGA G2, EVGA GS, Antec HCG... Im guessing you are in Europe.

well a 450 or 550 watt would be fine and still have plenty of headroom. this psu isn't the right choice at $100 as the evga 650 G2 is just plain better. the 550 watt version of this xfx is unbeatable at it's price though.

An EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G2 if you're totally sure that you're an not going to add another GPU for dual SLI set up. An EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2 for more headroom if you're planning add more GPU in the future.
