  1. You need a minimum of a 500W PSU with two PCI-e connectors, which your PSU doesn't. (COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-500-PCAR-A3 500W ATX12V V2.3 Power Supply, give this is truly your PSU)

    You will want something like SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze 520W or at minimum Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 Modular Active PFC Power Supply, which is the best BP made by Antec (the others I wouldn't recommend)
  2. Cheapest you should use is this OCZ 500W modxstream pro. $33 after MIR and 10% promo code.
