✔ Best Answer
At least 600W to 700W, remember to get good ones not cheap ones.

I am a hardware guy not a software guy but i try to help.

Your system will run happily with a 500W PSU, provided it's a decent quality unit such as this Corsair 500W for just $30 after rebate & promo code:

If you're concerned that it won't be powerful enough, go for this Corsair 650W for $60 after rebate & promo code, but you must order it today to take advantage of the deal:

Here's a Rosewill 550W but it's slightly more expensive than the 650W Corsair, however it's "80 PLUS GOLD Certified". It's promo code also expires today:

Any one of them will work.
