A new PSU would probably be good for your system you are kind of in the bottom limit of how much your psu can handle. Also stabelizing those rails would improve stability. If you have a $110 budget I recomend the OCZ Powerstream 520W. I have had very good results with it and its rails are rock solid.

i had a 35$ 550W crapy psu and i thought that was the reason stopping me to go over 4125mhz,thought it wasnt giving stable voltages and not enough amparage and then i bought a true 550W FSP 60PLN 94$ PSU and nothing changed lol,i gave all the bucks for a quiter psu
