450w+ unit with 30a+ on the 12v rail will do the job

models like the antec neo eco 520w, corsair cx500, antec earthwatt EA500, OCZ modXstream 500w are some budget options.

ok thanks then i think my 550w psu will work then, since the minimum requirement for the gtx 550 is 400w and since im putting in two I thought i would need to add an extra 150w.


Crap, I missed the "x2" at the end. My fault on that, but yes a 550W should be fine.
