2x2GB Gskill Ram
500 GB 7200rpm HD
1 CD/DVD drive

You'll need around 410W with 35A on +12V rail(s)
I suggest a good-quality 450w with about 38A current

Antec, Corsair, OCZ. These are the best brands
If you live in the USA, Newegg would be a good place to buy from.

Why you stuck on OCZ? The Seasonic and the Corsair are both higher quality units. I would not rate OCZ with the other 2. To me the best brands are Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, Antec and XFX. Maybe certain OCZ models can be listed with those brands but not all their units are the same quality.

How bout this one? its the 600 w version but is only 59.99 because of a promo code

That is the best bargain at the minute, $49.99 with rebate and will easily power your setup.
I have the 700w version and its been rock steady for years.

It is fair to say that OCZ aren't in the same league as Corsair and Seasonic but thats not to say they aren't a decent psu manufacturer and for that price its a steal.

Personally for $10 more (with rebate) I'd go for the Corsair but the OCZ will be fine if thats the one you decide on.
