PSU questions...

What should be the minimum wattage I should be looking for in a PSU with my system makeup? Also, what are some brands out there that have been performing good? How can I determine what wattage I should be looking for...is there a calculator?

I have:
Asus M2N32-Sli Deluxe MB
4x 2g A-Data DDR2-800
1x WD Raptor 150 Sata.
3x 80gb sata
1x 9800 GTX+ Black GPU
1x Zip 250
1x 120mm fan
2x 70mm fan
1x small fan that came with the m/b

I currently have a Coolmax 950w PSU that I am suspecting to be the cause of my random, but constant lockups. I have already replaced the GPU once and the problem persists. I have sent them an email to see what they will do for me. In the meantime I am considering another PSU purchase and looking for recommendations. Let me know if I left out any information that you need.

  1. While the Coolmax is by no means a high quality PSU, that is way more than enough power for your system.

    A good quality 500W PSU is plenty. If you know you'll be adding another GPU, go with a 750W. Corsair would be my first recommendation.
