    I would say a decent 600Watt should do you proud.

    Well i would get a good 750W PSU.. which should easily handle your config and should also keep it future proofed :)

    Go for 600w if you are not going to OC, but if you are going to OC then get 700w PSU:thumb:

    I your place i would buy corsair AX650 PSU, it is great but for me too expensive...
