  1. A good 450W+ PSU should be fine.(like Corsair HX450)
  2. is it ok if im doing a crossfire and oc my cpu to 3.8ghz?
  3. For CF and OC together you would need at least a 500W. Get a Corsair VX550W for some room.

  4. I would also suggest a 550 watt power supply, a smaller one is not that much cheaper.
  5. Seasonic 650 or 620.xfx 650.corsair 650

    What's your budget ?

    A 550-600W PSU would be enough even with extreme OC. They won't consume more than 250W in CF.
    Here you have some good options for handling your system:
