I agree, 400R is a great case

A quality 550w will be more than enough for a single gpu card, here's a few I can think of from the top of my head:

Antec True Power New 550
Antec NeoECO 520C
Antec High Current Gamer 520
XFX Core Series/Pro Edition 550w

Any one of those would be a great choice, just go by price


Hope that helps

Would those PSUs give me enough power to OC my CPU, GPU, and potentially RAM? Not to mention run a few case fans? I'm just worried about getting the bare minimum

If I were you I'd skip all the talk about a 550 or 650 watt power supply. Just splurge now and spend the extra $15 to move up to a 750 watt.

Trust me that when you want to add that second video card the last thing you'll want to do is change out your power supply. It can be a major hassle depending on your case.

Yes, any of the above should be able to power everything. I have used a 550w psu to power an overclocked proc, 8 case fans and two overclocked HD4870x in xfire.

Edit: Would not recommend it though if you can get a better PSU for sli later on by all means do.

Ok. Also, as a side note... what's a 750-800w supply that could run SLI MSI 570s? If it says it just has 1 12v rail, how do you connect both cards? Excuse my noobiness. It's just, if the 570 says it takes +12v 38a, how do you connect 2 with a 750w PSU that has one 12v rail with 60a?

520-550w is more than enough for your current setup. But if you plan on SLI-ing in the future, you'll need to get more. If you do plan on SLI and would wanna actually save a bit more for now, I'd suggest dropping the 570 and get a 560Ti. 560Ti on SLi should be wicked.
