Ok, so I was going to pick up a 700w OCZ psu, but im still debating if I really need that much power..
How much power do I really need? I want a good stable psu, but If I dont have to spend that much I wont.

You'll be good with a 550 Watt PSU, probably even lower as long as it has decent amps on the rails. I have a 550Watt Sunbeam NUUO and it runs my system fine, and ours are kind of similar.

Needs more rails? Like 4 rails, I could have sworn recently they have had some articles that show that having more rails isn't necessarily that great. But i'll let the other guys help you out, don't wanna lead you the wrong way.
