very easy.

look up the wattage next to the cpu model, then add another 50 lets say for motherboard hdd...

then go here for video card power consumption : MSI GeForce GTX 580 Lightning 1536 MB Review - Page 21/27 | techPowerUp


and then look up what all this comes to combined, and then figure out how big a psu you should buy.

always always keep handy a kill a watt or a blue planet energy meter, they will tell you how much the rig is

pulling from the wall. which you can convert depending on how efficient your psu is.
