I've tried a calculator, it says recommended is 350 watt, so a 400 watt will do right?

CPU: i5 3570k
GPU: Radeon 7850

yes, a quality 400w will do the job. gaming wise you won't break 300w but I would personally go with a 430w+ PSU (28+ on the 12v rail)
CPU: Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4.3GHz
Motherboard: EVGA X79 SLI
Chipset Drivers: Intel 9.​2.​3.​1022
Hard Disk: Samsung 470 (256GB)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3-1867 4 x 4GB (8-10-9-26)




something like the xfx 450w, antec EW 500w, corsair CX500, seasonic 520w just to name a few among many solid to quality offerings on the market

400 W will do great and 600 W will be good for crossfire in the future
