It is a reasonably priced quality PSU! For your specs though a 500 - 550 watt PSU would do fine!

Thanks for the reply! But I have one more question. Since you said I only need about a 500W power supply, I looked for one on newegg.

How does this compare to the corsair and the one I currently have in my system? Will this supply enough power to my graphic card?

The Rosewill Green series of PSUs are a decent quality and that particular PSU is more than sufficient to power your PC.

I've been told that I should replace my current PSU because it's a shitty brand and it will short circuit soon. However, I've had it for 4 years and haven't had any problems so far other than my computer restarting out of nowhere. Should I really replace my PSU? And thanks for the replies! I appreciate it.

Rebooting out of nowhere could be a PSU issue, Raidmax is known to be at the bottom barrel quality wise so replacing it is a good idea!
