Default I think I need a new PSU

This is my current build

and this will be my build as soon as all the parts come in

I made a few mistakes and Im fixing them now...but the biggest of all I just realized the the guide is telling me this is 848watts and I have an hx850i...It is still in the window to return to amazon but what do you guys think is a good PSU to get? and what size 1000? 1200?

I would get at least 1200W with that system, TBH.

Note, to, that PCPartPicker will give you a "full load" rating ... everything going full-tilt at the same time. That's typically pretty unlikely.
