  1. A 380W Antec Earthwatts would have no trouble with that system. If you're looking for higher efficiency than 80+ bronze, the new Seasonic 360W G-360 would also be a good choice and is 80+ gold. Both PSUs have received favorable competent technical reviews.
  2. The better Corsair PSUs are all made by Seasonic. V2 of the "Builder" series is Channel Well. I've read enough mixed comments about them to be a little leery, but they also get good competent technical reviews.

    i think a good 500watt should do fine and also give you some room for a better graphics card if you choose to upgrade in the future
  4. your spec isn't that demanding, can run on 350w but i suggest something like this.

    Corsair CX 430w is a good cheap low end PSU that gets recommended a lot.

    BTW, the manufacturers put requirements on there expecting you will buy the worst crap overrated cheapy PSU of that wattage that you can find. Even the suckiest 500w should be able to run that setup is what they are saying.

    A high quality lower wattage PSU will do just as well if not better with the same task than a POS high wattage PSU will.
