  1. For your setup 500w is more than sufficient.

  2. Here's a great deal on a Seasonic built XFX 650w , that will leave room for upgrades.

  3. Hi, just dropping by to say that you would want to buy a Modular PSU. It means that you can decide what cables you want to use and what not. It's alot easier than the ones that have alot of cables just haning around. That could seriously disrupt airflow in you case and it would also become more dusty.

    I made the mistake of not doing that and i ended up with ALOT of cable's which i could barely hide away.

    Conclusion: you want a modular powesupply.

    You don't need 650W or above. For your requirements, 500-550W is more than enough:
