How much water am I supposed to drink in a day???

Ok so I've started to really buckle down and change my eating habits but I've read so many different bits of advice as to how much water I'm supposed to have in a day. I've read everything from 64oz to 1/2 oz per pound you weigh. Which means I would have to drink 114oz.
What is right? How much should I really drink?
