I have finally decided that i'm getting a rm series from corsair but I need to now look at how much power i need. I know that 650w will be enough but the 750w is only very slightly more expensive. Also I was thinking that maybe having 750w power supply would future proof my build for the future if I choose to upgrade. Another thing I have heard though is that having a too higher wattage means that the psu does not run that efficient. I am open to everyone's opinion and I will be a grateful for a reply.

Go with the RM750 if you plan to SLI your GTX 770, and overclock. According to the PCPP watt calculator, SLI GTX 770 in your build would pull 653watts.
