Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

A good 750W PSU or above can handle that system, Corsair, Antec, Seasonic and XFX are very good brands.

Pretty much any of the ones Saint listed would have the required amperage for your needs. A few more to consider are: Enermax, Lepa (rebadged enermax, with fugly fans), and PC P&C. Personally I go for overkill and get a higher wattage unit that is at least 80+ gold. (typically 1000W)

My personal favorites are the Corsair PSU's with a single +12v rail. The HX750 linked in the thread here would be excellent as it provides 60 amps on the +12v rail and is 80+ certified and comes with a 7 year warranty on parts and labor. Just keep your paperwork. Sales receipt and shipping invoice. No need to register the product just have the paperwork for warranty.

I'd go with something like this one:

Yeah it's expensive, but I like quality and high components.

That is nice and it's modular to boot, no pun intended :D  I would go for that to ! then again Im not afraid to spend money on Corsair PSU units. When I got my first one I was like holy cow this thing is nice. The first thing you notice is all the quality packaging, the zip ties, the heavy duty power cord and the weight of the PSU and how solid it's built. Everything about there units screams quality. Oh I forgot the most important part. You get a sticker to :D

Something to keep in mind, is that many of the better Corsair PSUs are made by Seasonic. So, if specs are identical, you can choose between them on price.
