Actually just one thing - 750w is overkill. You'll only need 500-550w max for your setup.

Thanks, would you still only recommend 550W if we would want to upgrade to 3-4 HDDs in the future?

A decent 400W PSU can handle multiple hard drives in those systems, since they have very undemanding graphics cards in them.
I'd suggest the Seasonic G-360, except it only has four SATA connectors.

I've decided I want to add a SSD to one of these systems, looking at this one:

Does this look good or would anyone recommend something different?

Thanks Again!
