EVGA 850W G2 (Or G3 if you can find one). Why do you need 850W?

@STRMfrmXMN

 anything from tier 1 is great, the G2 is amazing, as are the RM850i/x and the Seasonic X as @RKRiley mentioned

And lastly, never put a CX green series PSU in a high end build https://youtu.be/Oybz5Q-If9M?t=7

What are your current specs? Most PCs with a single GPU only need 500W, 750W for SLI (Less would work, just less efficient).

Unless youve got like, 2 titans in your build and a decent cpu to match you won't need 850w :P

700W would be plenty (Less would work, just less efficient).

Two 970s in SLI plus an overclocked 4790k might hint at exceeding 400W but only barely. A 700W PSU is already plenty. I'd recommend an EVGA 750G2.
