A power supply by corsair or antec would be a better choice. Try the antec high current series or the corsair tx series. 750-850watts would be what I would reccomend.

80 plus bronze (clue, does not indicate high quality)

I believe we are making the same point here.... Corsair and Antec are big name brands that have a pretty good reputation.

I don't see why anyone would buy less than a gold standard PSU if you are using expensive components, therefore bronze, no-name brand is not recommended.

I suppose my previous post was a bit light, this is what I meant...
