What are the rails?

You can go to newegg order history and post us a link to the brand

i think 600 watt should be enough

Well, you can never have to powerful a PSU, and if you get one PSU, but just barely edge over on needing a new one, you have effectively paid twice as much.

So you might as well get a decent 700 watt model. Worst comes to worst, you get an adaptor in two or three years because of some newer standard.
