A quality 500W PSU would be enough for your system, but HEC is not known for quality PSUs, so that's what I'd suspect first too.

I would suggest a 600W OCZ Power Supply, you can get them really cheap these days, and there very good quility.

Hope this helps.

Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, and Enermax are all decent.
