380 continuous and 400 max, odd
Single 12v rail at 17a does not equal a 380 watt psu, more like a 250w
40a on the 5v, that's designed for older systems.
You getting what I'm leading to ?

A good quality 380 watt psu would be fine for your specs
This psu , wherever you can find it, don't know your location, is a favorite low power reccomendation

What do you mean ?
Are you asking if Crysis could cause your computer to require so much power that a 380w psu might pop ?
If yes, the answer is no, your computer will run Crysis as well as it can, and you won't come anywhere near blowing the psu up in the process.

ok thats great :D , my last question is, Would I be able to run my computer on the 250w for a bit, it would be for a few days or so?

You could try it, don't think I'd try playing Crysis with it though.
