  3. Look for at least a 450 w/ 24 AMPs on the 12 volt rail, might look at this

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182066
  4. Have a look at the guide: http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page362.htm - 430W
    and the Calculator: http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp
    to determine the Wattage you're after.
    Then choose examples from a PC components website; eg http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=15_535&vk_sort=1
    that will fit in your budget. Then have a look at reviews eg http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Corsair-CX430-Power-Supply-Review/1200
    and forums eg http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2085280/psu-wattage-choice.html
    Then make your choice
