    Question Ideal PSU for this system?

    Hi, I am building a rig with the following specs. I want to know whether a Seasonic X-650 will be sufficient or not. I'll be using this PC mainly for content creation with premiere pro, after effects, cinema 4d and some Max/MSP (strickly for video art purposes). Though am not a hardcore gamer but I would like to enjoy some games like the upcoming Forza Horizon 3, Battlefield 1, Gears of War 4 and titles like Far Cry Primal and Doom. I'll be overclocking the CPU and also the graphics card, duh!

    SPEC:

    Asus X99 STRIX motherboard
    Intel Core i7 6800K processor
    Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB DDR4 2400 MHz RAM (4 x 8 GB)
    MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G graphics card
    Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB SSD (x3)
    Seagate 2 TB SSHD (x2)
    Deepcool GF140 (x2), GF120 (x1) fans
    NZXT Kraken X61 cooler
    NZXT Phantom 240 cabinet with 2 x 120mm case fans
    Logitech MK345 wireless keyboard & mouse
    Wacom One medium pen tablet

    A high-end 450W PSU is probably enough if the CPU OC isn't to extreme, but a high-end 550W is definitely enough, 650W is useless.
