I went with the 550W. Lower than that would probably ruin it.

Although my CPU is a bottleneck until I buy an FX-8320, I must say this card is VERY silent and its' two cooling fans are doing an excellent job. Highly recommended to everyone who's looking a good value/performance ratio.

750W is a factory assurance that will run the card with no problems. You will be fine with any power supply that has at least 550W, as long as it is an established manufacturer (XFX, Corsair, Seasonic, Antec and Cooler Master) because their PSU's have a high efficiency.
