If you're going to spend the money on a new PSU, and you should, you might as well plan for the future. The nice thing about PSUs is the technology doesn't really get out dated per say. I would go with AT LEAST a 750watt bronze rated.

I also suggest a full modular design. Once you go modular you don't go back.

Get rid of that damned Thermaltake PSU before you hurt yourself lol. Thermaltake make SOME quality cooling products, that's about it. look up XFX when it comes to PSUs.

that is a bit too large. for what you have a 500 to 550 is plenty.
