You would want something a gamer would use. See the following article for some suggestions on high end power supplies.

Best Power Supply for Gaming
Indeed! I used to recommend 650 watts as minimum, but these days, 750 watts is my minimum(my spare PSU is an 850 I bought on sale). I have no gripe about AMD, but these days, intel is my choice for an audio machine. 32GB is my minimum RAM too and I would(will) spend the extra $$ for Thunderbolt 3/4 on my next build. Yes, I may not use TB, but I want to be able to, regardless as the cost difference is pretty small(I expect to get at least 10 years out of any PC build, so an extra $200 now equals $20 per year)
Gigabyte X79/intel i7 3930K, 32GB RAM, HD/Native, 192 IO
