Answer by Menard K
as to the VOLTS question, what are the mains were you live?

and to properly address what I think you are asking,
PLEASE do the exercise in looking at each bit and noting
the power required to operate it and add up the POWER that
you are going to need. Power is expressed in WATTS

    Power supply is measured in watts (the clue is in the name). As an estimate I’d say 600 or 700 W for that. A decent PSU will only draw the power it needs though so if your system is idling only 200W may be drawn
