    650W would be more than enough. In fact, even a good quality 450W PSU would be enough. I haven't heard of A-power, though. Could you maybe open your case and take a picture of the PSU specs? There should be a label with the specs.
  2. QUALITY 450w unit would be more than enough.

    I would go with a QUALITY 550w unit so you can upgrade later on.

    Keep in mind a cheap (a-power ??) 650w psu only put's out a real 400-450w. A QUALITY 650w psu put's out a real 650w.
