I would bump it up to a quality 500w to be safe.

this site says that the recommend amount for my computer is 354w..
is this trustable

my PSU is 80+ bronze certified so i would think i would be fine...

i really dont want to spend more than this and buy a new PSU

It's a decent summary , you could get away with the 430 , but there would be no room for upgrades.

Not really , because you won't be stressing it much.

The 8320 and 300R are a good fit.

The case is awesome.
