This is just a wild guess off the top of my head, but I'd say about 700-750 watts. Maybe even less, but I don't really know. Not too familiar with PSUs.

 

I recommend going with a good brand, like Corsair or Cooler Master. There's more, but I don't know which make quality power supplies. I personally use a CM PSU. :)

I'd say that bronze is good enough, though someone more familiar with the subject will know better than me. Take a look at Corsair's TX series, I've heard they're very solid power supply units. A good 650 watt psu would serve you well I think.

I have one of these http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00FG9FWF8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00 with an i7 4770k, 8 gb ram and gtx 770. Never had any problems and absolutely love that's it's modular and can take most of the cables out that are not being used. It is also completely silent when not under load. 

For your build with the higher gtx I was say go for a little more power 750w maybe should be ok.

Actually, the 9xx series draws less power than the older generations because of the new architecture, so he'd be fine with a 650w aswell, I think.
