The 400w would be fine for those spec's.

it's just that i think my crappy CIT 550w is causing reboots when under full load - it's only got 12v 16a and god knows what the actual efficiency is.
would u say that's a reflection on the quality of the psu rather than the wattage then?

(i dont really know much about this!)
