What? Do you already own these parts? What case? What is your budget? What country?

well you have system that will load up around 300 watts under heavy load in gaming. you need a good 450 watt. if you plan for 970 SLI take a 650, even though a good 550 with the right cables can run it.

really some told me at best buy that i will need a 900 watts.

That someone at bestbuy doesn't know what they are talking about and/or just want to make a expensive sale.

i had a feeling. would that 900w be a over kill? and i guess $200

Yes unless you planed on running 2 Gigabyte G1's or 3 normal GTX 970's. For that price I would recommend a Evga 750 watt G2, plenty of wattage for SLI and overclocking the whole build.

Well its basically is impossible for anyone to recommend you a specific psu then, i think you have bigger issues if you don't know what is the max amount of money you can spend is.
