My System Specs

Default

a quality 550W unit would be more than enough to power a an IB cpu and 670. (750W will be fine) The 670 won't consume 400W itself. It only uses 2 6 pin connectors each spec'd for 75W plus another 75W on the PCIe slot, so it will consume maybe 150-200W at full load. 3570k about 80W at full load not OC'd. So you will have lots of headroom.

edit: Your entire system would barely consume 400W from the wall at full load.
