According to the specifications found on Sapphire site, you'd want to go with a quality PSU (Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, etc...), offering at least 500 watts.

This is a wattage calculator. Plug in your planned build, see what the (peak) wattage is with everything running, and then see how much room you have for expansion in the future. Add a green drive, add a black drive, see how long a 500W will last you.

This does bear repeating though: "A single Dual or Quad CORE CPU is still 1 physical CPU!"
